Lecture

Jung stated that psychological transformation leads to a new attitude within the individual. He also saw image as the central theme of psychological life. In this presentation we will use a well know fairytale, The Frog King, by the Bothers Grimm, to explore just how images lead to psychological transformation. We will come to understand just why Jung felt that image was so central to psychological change and how we can begin to work with the images that are alive in our own lives to aid in our own development.

Suggested Reading: ‘The Frog King or Faithful Heinrich in, Grimm and Grimm (1992) The Complete Fairytales of the Brothers Grimm. Bantam Books, New York
