JPA Spring Workshop
The Archetype of Number : Where Mind and Matter Meet; A Clinical View
Presented by Laura Lewis-Thayer, LMHC, EAMP
Jungian Analyst AGAP International
Number is the most fundamental ordering principle of both psyche
and matter. This workshop outlines the parallel processes by which
consciousness and matter form from a common substrate. Each
archetypal pattern has specific characteristics, functions, and virtues.
Becoming familiar with these patterns gives powerful insight into
clinical issues, both healthy and problematic.
This workshop brings together clinical theory with body-centered insight and experience to promote the following learning objectives:
gain insight into the common nature of psyche and matter
learn the psychological expressions associated with the most basic archetypal patterns.
deepen perception and develop clinical skill
