C G Jung Program Guide : July-Dec 2014
15 6 Carl Gustav Jung (1875—1961) C.G . Jung developed a method of psychotherapy and a theoretical system now known as Analytical Psychology. Jung completed formal studies as a Psychiatrist at universities of Basel and Zürich and had his first clinical experience at the famed Burgölzli Psychiatric Hospital in Zurich, of which he later became Director. Jung created some of the best known psychological concepts, includ- ing the archetype, the collective unconscious, the complex, and syn- chronicity. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a popular psy- chometric instrument, was developed from Jung's theories. Jung considered Individuation necessary for a person to become whole. Individuation is a process of transformation whereby the per- sonal and collective unconscious is brought into consciousness (by means of dreams, active imagination or free association to take some examples) to be assimilated into the whole personality. It is a com- pletely natural process necessary for the integration of the psyche to take place. Individuation has a holistic healing effect on the person, both mentally and physically.
