This paper will revisit the topic of assessment for analysis and psychotherapy, in a cultural context where the values we hold as Jungian analysts, to help patients develop an imagination and symbolic capacity, through attention to relationship and unconscious processes, are not much appreciated.
The paper will discuss the author’s own views about what is important when offering initial consultations for analysis, with particular attention to the sometimes insidious influences of the context in which the assessment is offered. The speaker will bring clinical examples from her own assessments to illustrate her themes.
