Sondra Geller

In this experiential course we will explore the interpersonal dynamics constellated in the analytic relationship. Particular focus will be on what happens in the often-silent space when the client makes art in the presence of the analyst.  How does this experience facilitate the process of individuation?

            Many clients entering into the deep work of analysis are often concerned about the feelings evoked by working so intently and so soulfully with another.  One often thinks of the dynamics of the parent/infant/child days.  Jung had many ways of talking about this phenomenon; field dynamics, mutual influence, mixed unconscious and alchemical conjunction. This course will use the experience of art-making to give an overview of how what is both seen and unseen in analysis advances the work of individuation.
