想到可以直接参与ALEX的CPPD课程,可以又朝我的梦想迈进一大步了。沙游、游戏与艺术治疗原本就很难界定到底那一个比哪个好。现在,可以直接运用创意艺术原理来丰富我的辅导咨询工作实在太棒了。

愿我自己可以时时刻刻哪么又冲劲,保持积极的学习精神,努力的往我的梦想又夸进一大步

加油。加油。

请大家多多指教 :)

Archetype

Archetype

The origins of the archetypal hypothesis date back as far as Plato. Jung himself compared archetypes to Platonic ideas. Plato's ideas were pure mental forms, that were imprinted in the soul before it was born into the world. They were collective in the sense that they embodied the fundamental characteristics of a thing rather than its specific peculiarities.

The concept of psychological archetypes was advanced by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, c. 1919. In Jung's psychological framework archetypes are innate, universal prototypes for ideas and may be used to interpret observations. A group of memories and interpretations associated with an archetype is a complex, e.g. a mother complex associated with the mother archetype. Jung treated the archetypes as psychological organs, analogous to physical ones in that both are morphological constructs that arose through evolution. [4]

Jung outlined five main archetypes:

  • The Self, the regulating center of the psyche and facilitator of individuation
  • The Shadow, the opposite of the ego image, often containing qualities that the ego does not identify with but possesses nonetheless
  • The Anima, the feminine image in a man's psyche; or:
  • The Animus, the masculine image in a woman's psyche
  • The Persona, how we present to the world, usually protects the Ego from negative images (acts like a mask)
