What Will You Learn?

Carl Jung, the renowned 20th-century Swiss psychiatrist, believed our minds have a predetermined structure that shapes how and what we’ll experience in life. According to him, identical psychic structures, which are typical to all humans, exist in parts of our psyche, and these heritable structures influence the way we experience everything in our lives.

Jung called these structures ‘archetypes’, which can be described as cognitive categories or natural inclinations that we all are born with, and their job is to make us think, feel, perceive and act in a specific way. This course explores this concept and its place within psychology, psychoanalysis, and fictional writing.

The Jungian Archetypes Diploma Course jumps straight into the subject of Jungian psychology - explaining what the Jungian archetypes are, Carl Jung’s concept of the psyche and its three main components, and what the 12 main archetypes are and what they are used for.

We’ll take a look into Carl Jung’s life - his childhood, education, personal life and association with Sigmund Freud. We will also consider his important ideas and concepts, as well as his legacy and influence.

The course examines the book ‘Instinct and the Unconscious’, which exhibits Jung’s understanding of instincts as unconscious processes, distinguishing instincts from phobias and reflex actions, the origin of instincts and how they differ from intuition, personal unconscious, the collective unconscious, and archetypes and archetypes as metaphysical ideas.

We’ll discuss psychophysical patterns and the electromagnetic spectrum idea, archetypal events, archetypal motifs and the shadow, anima/animus, and the self.

We take a deeper look at the 12 main archetypes introduced at the start of the course and examine each in greater detail - giving a comprehensive understanding of each. These archetypes are Hero, Magician, Outlaw, Innocent, Sage, Explorer, Artist, Ruler, Caregiver, Lover, Jester and Everyman. We then look at how archetypes were used by notable psychologists and psychoanalysts James Hillman, Jacques Lacan, Melanie Klein, Sigmund Freud, Robert Langs, and Ernest Rossi.

The course concludes by taking a look at how the 12 main archetypes are written into books and films.
