Jung and the Language Classroom

Akita JALT Chapter Meeting and Presentation

Saturday, March 23, 2019

Presenter:  Prof. Patrick Dougherty, Ed.D.


Dr. Carl Jung is best known as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst and as the founder of analytical psychology.   What is not as widely known is that his work has impacted education. Specifically, his work led to the foundation and development of archetypal pedagogy (Mayes, 2005).  This presentation will give the attendees background on Jung, archetypal pedagogy, and its implications, both practical and theoretical, for the language classroom.
