Professional Training (CPD) for Therapists and Health Professionals
Accessing the Unconscious; A Jungian Exploration of Dream and Fantasy – with Stephen Bushell
February 27 @ 10:00 am-4:00 pm£95 – £105
For Carl Jung our dreams and fantasies give us direct access to the unconscious. The creative function of the psyche, which is largely unconscious, is to produce symbolic images that we can bring into consciousness by working with our dreams and fantasies. In this way we work on expanding consciousness as it becomes more able to contain previously split off material; and most importantly we approach the Self, that central archetype of order and wholeness which, in collaboration with the ego, energises and directs our journey of becoming.
In this workshop Stephen will guide us in working with dreams (our own and from client material): how to work with feeling in dreams, exploring the symbolic nature of the material and how to conduct ‘active imagination’ with figures in our dreams. The format will be a mix of some time teaching of concepts and methodology and plenty of opportunity for experiential learning.
No previous knowledge of Jung is necessary nor expected, just an openness to explore together.
Stephen Bushell is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Buckingham. He is a member of the International Association of Analytical Psychologists (IAAP) and is registered with the UKCP. Prior to working as an analyst, for 15 years Stephen provided Spiritual and Pastoral care in inpatient and community Mental Health services across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. He has a long standing interest in the interface of spirituality and psychotherapy and particularly in the practice of meditation.
This event will be open to all therapists (including trainees) and health professionals. CPD certificates supplied. Restricted delegate numbers to 16, so early booking advisable.
The vast majority of our professional CPD events are led by psychotherapists. Each delegate is responsible for self-care should material during the event trigger difficult personal feelings.
“I would love to see Stephen Bushell return to give another workshop. I found his delivery to be very engaging and welcomed his experiential style. He held the group in a way that invited trust and disclosure and I valued his personal involvement in the process.”
“Thoroughly enjoyable CPD, despite having to take place on Zoom, a great connectedness was created within the group and the depth of material Stephen elicited within the group was thought provoking and enjoyable.”
“The day was richly filled with personal application and adaptability for the current pandemic, which I greatly appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the journey of the day. The group felt safe to share and that enabled a depth of learning to emerge at a natural pace throughout the time we shared together. I felt that we created something very precious and I’m still feeling the impact.”
“I have really enjoyed today and I am very interested on any future workshops on Jungs work, with Stephen. It has very much brought to life a subject that I have tried to battle with in my head. I have enjoyed the experiential nature of the workshop, very powerful for personal and professional life – it was also safe and deeply held by Stephen.”
“Wonderful ambience, great organisation, brilliant speaker”
