Mask Making But, if you have nothing at

Mask Making But, if you have nothing at all to create, then perhaps you create yourself.~ Carl Jung Ashlee Ellerbruch, Ali Longstreet, Sarah Restoule Fun Facts Persona comes from the Latin word meaning mask or false face. Jungs archetypal theory is actually based on real life events of the struggles he had in the relationship with his mother, and a difficulty in establishing a sense of I (i.e. persona, shadow, self). Jungs archetypal symbols are presumed to link directly to the underlying structure of the brain.

Theoretical Backgroun d Jungs Archetypes Basic patterns or universal themes to humanity which are present in the unconscious and conscious state Instinctive trends or impulses that are brought to consciousness through self-awareness and natural tendencies Persona One could say, with little exaggeration, that the persona is that which in reality one is not, but which oneself as well as others think one is. Carl Jung Mask or image we present to others

Is both an interface with the world and protection from the outer world how one is accepted, wounded or rejected when one naively presents authentic thoughts, feeling or reaction. To Shadow confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light Anyone who perceives his shadow and his light simultaneously sees himself from two sides and thus gets in the middle. Carl Jung

The side of our personality we do not consciously display to others Contains all the negative tendencies that the individual wishes to deny Primal, animal instincts Undeveloped positive and negative qualities Dark side of the identity Self

Humans tend to compartmentalize split states of self in order to protect themselves Certain behaviours from exterior life are put in one space, and internal behaviours in another Totality of the personality. Striving for unity, wholeness and integration Client Type Presenting Concern Child
