Happy Chinese New Year!
In our February Study Group, we will look at the dog symbol. The dog is the first domesticated animal and is commonly associated with loyalty and vigilance. Often acting as guardian and protector, dogs are portrayed as guides and companions. In sandplay therapy, dog unusally represents an instinct which is easy to integrate and even can be assimilated. Other than her own research on the symbol, Chris will use the Journal article: “The Dog: Guide, Guardian and Soul Mate” by Jellemieke Hees-Stauthamer” (you can find the article in our online resource library). She will also use Barbara Hannah’s book “The Cat, Dog and House Lectures and The Beyond” in her presentation. If you do not have a copy of this book, it is worth getting one: https://www.bookdepository.com/Barbara-Hannah-Cat-Dog-Horse-Lectures-Barbara-Hannah/9780933029590?ref=grid-view&qid=1579837510547&sr=1-1
Carmen will use her clinical cases to illustrate the symbol. She will present a six year old boy who have fear in moving to his new stage of development and we will see the significance of the dog symbol in his process.
