Demystifying Jung

by | May 19, 2022 | 0 comments

Jung was a complicated man. He was broad minded to the point that he dabbled in parapsychology and ESP. Jung outlined a type of new psychology but was hesitant to spell out what the implications or boundaries of this new psychology should be. Jung’s ambivalence towards standardizing his psychology shows across the varied fields in which it has become practiced. The study of archetypal images latent within the humanity’s collective unconscious has become known as “depth psychology”. This study has been applied to many fields, namely sociology, anthropology, creative writing and comparative religion.

he broad strokes of Jungian psychology as a clinical style is that it is more growth oriented than the majority of other modalities. The goal of most psychotherapy models is the rapid reduction of symptoms. The focus of Jungian psychology is self discovery and personal growth across the life cycle. Jungian clinicians put more emphasis on helping patients discover what they want than on trying to help patients get what they say they want. Jungian clinicians put a large emphasis in expressing the self through creativity and on growth as a person.
