Laura Dodson: "I studied with and co-worked with Virginia Satir for many years - and later became a Jungian analyst. A big part of my personal and professional journey has been to understand the similarities and differences of these two profound people - and to integrate their philosophies and ways of working into my practice and my life."

The Workshop: This distinguished guest workshop will focus on Satir's and Jung's views of the unconscious, processes of growth, and skills in working with individuals, couples and families. The workshop will be conducted with lecture, demonstration and role play of participants' issues or those of clients, as well as discussion. Your questions and comments will determine the emphasis on various areas of the topic. There will be learning for body, mind and soul.

She holds a degree in Social Work and a Ph.D in Psychology. Laura is a senior Jungian Analyst. She is the author of several articles, and the editor of two books and author of one.
