A Clinical Seminar

with Julie Bondanza, PhD

Description of the Seminar: 

“The Hunger for Attachment” seminar is the first in this year’s Clinical Perspectives: Seminars by Jungian Analysts series. This seminar investigates the interface between attachment theory and archetypal psychology and its application to the practice of psychotherapy. The archetypal dimension of attachment will be amplified through several folk tales of Hans Christian Andersen and symbolic clinical material, including dreams and transference interactions. Special attention will be paid to the development of what John Bowlby called internal working models which are formed in childhood and their consequent influence on adult relationships and their role in the process of individuation. This will be examined against a background of evidence based clinical studies.

Target Audience, Educational Methods & Objectives:

This is an advanced level workshop, open to established clinicians and advanced students of analytical psychology. Assigned readings will be analyzed through a combination of lecture and class discussion. At completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

1.Define attachment as a category of developmental psychological theory. 2. Name the four types of attachment and describe what affects their development. 3. Illustrate the archetypal dimension of attachment. 4. Describe how attachment style developed in childhood affects adult relationships both in and out of the clinical setting.

The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.
