Psychotherapy can be seen as the healing activity of the imagination. This course will look at modern theories of imaginal psychology including recent developments in Jungian and archetypal psychology. It will look at the interface between image and culture, and the use of image as it is currently used in medical, educational and therapeutic settings. How to deal with images in therapy, and specifically transference, and ways a therapist can prepare for image work will also be explored.
