The topic of this blog entry is “A Jungian View of Fairy Tales.” What is the relationship between fairy tales and the Jungian psychoanalysis? Make sure to include what Dr. Mazeroff talked about.
Jung's psycho analysis has a direct correlation to the the fairy tales that children express. the fairy tales delve into the feelings of that child and how they portray themselves. Because fairy tales are an escape and comfort children of their problems the one that a child picks is very important to how they feel about their life and how they want to portray it and what outcome they want to achieve. another way to diagnose these issues could be with dream therapy which is a gateway into the subconsciousness of any human being The dream world is a safe place where adults and children are safe and willing to express there desires and feelings without suppressing them like they do in the physical world. although dreams are always up to interpretations therapist and psycho analyzers have conducted qualitative research that is directly linked to what you could be dreaming and what it may mean to you. fairy tales are very much the same way. a fairy tale could be considered a written dream. anything can happen in a fairy tale like a dream, but it follows a specific story line that you cannot change if it becomes to scary or unlikable. fairy tales help to build a bridge to the subconsciousness mind of children when it is to difficult for the children to articulate how they feel in the physical world. with adults it is much easier to ask them: "what did you dream?" the continue with a psycho analysis from there. otherwise observations of their character in sessions should suffice for a definition of their ego. fairy tales and dreams are a way to unlock ones ego, libido, persona, shadow, and self. fairy tales are constructed story lines to help people define their being and could be related to dreams. dreams are more individualized to one person, but still can be interpreted to define ones existence.
