Jungian Psychology and the Arts
- Jung's Depth Psychology
- The Arts in Psychotherapy
- Myth and Symbol in Human Development
- Active Imagination
These were themes that Irene Champernowne explored throughout her life, and that continue in the work of the Trust that bears her name.
The Trust offers courses to support those who work at depth with people in distress, and provides assistance with therapy for those whose means are not sufficient.
Both these tasks are costly and our resources are under pressure.
The Champernowne Summer Course
Since 1972 The Champernowne Trust has offered its Summer Course for people working at depth in the helping professions, combining lectures and discussion with arts-based workshops and activities.
These courses have enabled exploration of practical, creative and inspirational applications of Jungian psychology in personal and professional life, and encouraged personal and professional development by linking creative and psychological aspects of change.
They are based on the premise that problem solving and innovation, whether in the arts, sciences or therapy, demands the cultivation of insight, enterprise and imagination.
The Course has a broadly Jungian/archetypal ethos, but without dogmatism or evangelism.
