Individuation – what does it mean; why does it matter and what has it to do with our emotions? Come, explore with us, a place along the path of increasing awareness, of a deeper understanding of two dynamic systems within ourselves – the psyche and the emotions; we’ll discuss and discover:

• In the system of the psyche, the rational functions of type, thinking and feeling, which are innate and hard-wired at birth
• In the system of emotions, the interpersonal emotions of sympathy, empathy, caring, compassion, which are innate, but flexible and need social development
• How a deeper understanding of each and their interactions may bring us to kinder, more effective and more wise relationships with both ourselves and with Others.
With C. G. Jung, with current psychology, with the Professor who named the “Platinum Rule” and with a true life character, sure to inspire, we’ll explore these aspects of our whole selves, bring them to consciousness, to advance our individual, unique, paths of Individuation.


Arlene Richter, M.Ed. and MBTI® Master Practitioner, has served as Workshop Chair and has been on the PAPT Board since 2010. She has, with a colleague, developed and facilitated 8 Function Study Groups, co-facilitated on-line 8 Function Courses with Bob McAlpine; studied the 8-Function Archetypes with Bob Mc Alpine and Adam Fry, developed and
presented programs for PAPT on the perceiving functions, the archetype of the Hero, the Jungian Shadow.

Since her graduate studies and internship as a TA at PSU in Intercultural Communications, Arlene has been interested in the many differences among us. Since her retirement from Secondary Language Arts Teaching, she has delved deeply into Jungian Typology and how the type theories of Jung, and great literature, enrich us all throughout our lives – and, she now adds, these also encourage us along our own unique paths of Individuation.
