From 1913, C.G. Jung engaged in a process of self-experimentation, documented in the Black Books and the Red Book, that led to a re-conception of the practice and rationale of psychotherapy, through developing the procedure of "active imagination". Critically, this placed great significance on non-verbal modes of expression in psychotherapy, and plated an important role in the subsequent development of art therapies. This talk traces the development of Jung's "practice of the image", how he put it into play in his work with his patients, as well as its relation to subsequent practices in analytical psychology and sandplay therapy.
