Exploring the Musical Unconscious

Presented by Rich Ryan, Ph.D.
Wednesday, August 04, 2010; 07:30PM - 09:30PM

Both Freud and Jung found music to be emotionally confusing, and neither ever explored music as a pathway to the deep unconscious. However, late in life Jung met a music therapist who demonstrated her work with patients by playing for and with Jung. He became very excited, stating, "This opens up whole new avenues of research I'd never dreamed of….This reaches the deep archetypal material that we can only sometimes reach in our analytical work with patients. This is most remarkable." Since then, much research has been done on the psychological aspects of music and its use in healing. Attendees will have the opportunity to access and engage the musical unconscious.
