Our Connection To Something Bigger: The Archetypes of C.G. Jung

Published on Feb 18, 2013 Sandra Portko, Ph.D. Thursday, February 14, 1:00 -- 2:30 Dr. Sandra Portko is a Professor of Psychology at Grand Valley State University. Dr. Portko will present a lecture on archetypes as introduced by the Swiss psychologist Carl. G. Jung. This concept emerged in his development of analytical psychology and contemporary approaches to psychological theory and practice. He used archetypes as a reference to inborn energy patterns that humans have possessed since the beginning of the human race. These "energy patterns" are not full-blown behaviors that are inherited, but rather potential responses that can be thought of as being similar to energy fields. These potential responses can be "activated" by coming in contact with certain situations. Thus, although the energy patterns are potentially accessible to every human, not every human will display all of the potential patterns. Category Education License Standard YouTube License
