Picture Interpretation and the Four-fold Structure of Consciousness, Part I
Presented by:
Willow Young, LMFT, Jungian Analyst

Tuition $80 (3 CE's Psychologist, LMFT AND LCSW)

Intermediate post-licensure instructional level

Please bring writing materials

Images engage our imagination and evoke stirring emotions, inspiring thoughts, and deep insights. How do we make sense of the tumult of our subjective experience as the image takes up residence in our thoughts and emotions, touching us deeply in places we hardly know?  As we project our inner landscape onto that of a painting, for example, how do we sort the experience of the picture from the painting itself?

Using the 2 main orientations (extroversion and introversion) and the 4 typological functions of consciousness (sensation, feeling, thinking and intuition), we will attempt to understand the expressions of the unconscious as expressed in culture; for example, in a painting, a film, or a fairytale. We will use the circumambulation of an image with each of the 4 typological functions to help us see what is presented both consciously and unconsciously. In this way we learn, for example, how to, "illuminate a picture with its own light", which can be helpful in creating consciousness.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify and differentiate the two orientations and 4 typological functions.
  2. Recognize an image as and expression of the unconcious psyche.
  3. Develop one hypothesis of what the picture might be saying through the practice of the art of picture interpretation.
  4. Describe what Jung meant by typology of consicousness.
Willow Young, MA, LMFT, and Jungian Analyst with degrees in psychology and world arts and cultures, and has studied picture interpretation with Theodore Abt. She has a practice in Ventura and Santa Barbara and is core faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
