EHP 3080 - C. G. Jung: His Life, Work, and Contemporary Perspectives in Analytical Psychology


The course offers an overview of the life and times of Carl Gustav Jung, in cultural context from 1875 to 1961, through autobiography and recent critical biography. It provides an introduction to the core constructs of his theories of personality, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, and post-Jungian extensions and critiques of his work in Analytical psychology that include areas of neuroscience, attachment theory, spirituality, and cultural complex theories. The course is offered to all students interested in the life and work of C.G. Jung across degree programs and Schools. It provides a strong theoretical foundation that supports and facilitates cohesive assimilation of aspects of his theories and work found in other courses offered at Saybrook. The course serves as a bridge to the in-depth study of Jung's classical work, the Collected Works of C.G. Jung, and the recently published Red Book. This latter work provides foreground and the background for Jung's original work, born from his creative and critical self-analysis. The course can serve as a portal to research, theory application, and professional practice in cross-cultural and multicultural psychology. Though open to all students, this course also satisfies the Clinical Interventions III/IV requirement in the Clinical Psychology degree program, with Clinical Interventions I & II as prerequisites. 3 credit(s)
