In this course, aspects are explained as personal myths that emerge from the underlying dynamics of the larger story structure. Participants explore how aspects can symbolize intrapsychic conflict, emotionally significant childhood experiences, major life challenges, and internal dialogues. Special emphasis is placed on how the meaning of an aspect changes in accordance with level of psychological maturity. As people develop, evolve, and resolve internal conflicts, this is reflected not only in changes of attitude and behavior but also in the events one attracts and the quality of one’s relations with other people. Students are introduced to a variety of psychological concepts that are incorporated into aspect theory, drawing from object relations, psychodynamic theory, personal mythology, and narrative therapy.
