Art Therapy Experiential: Jung Shadow/Persona Mandala


Communication and Counseling Skills - Fall 2017
Jung Shadow/Persona Mandala

What masks do I show to the world? What aspects of my shadow and unconscious manifest themselves in my life? This piece was a great opportunity to reflect on Jungian concepts of the shadow, persona, archetypes, and various symbols that lend themselves to Jungian psychology. I was able to think about the conscious and unconscious as well as the ways these things may manifest in my life.

Art Therapy Experiential: Symbol of Self in Change


Communication and Counseling Skills - Fall 2017
Symbol of Self in Change: Freedom vs. Tension

Depict yourself as you respond to/exist in change within your life. This piece was a great opportunity to reflect on my default response to stressors as well as viewing the ways those responses have changed over time, or possibly vary by situation. It illuminated areas of personal growth as well as areas of response that I can continue to learn from.
