Birth of the Self Date: Nov 14 2015 – 10:00am – 3:00pm Unity Church of Portland
“The neurosis is as a rule a pathological, one-sided development of the personality, the imperceptible beginnings of which can be traced back almost indefinitely into the earliest years of childhood. Only a very arbitrary judgment can say where the neurosis actually begins. If we were to relegate the determining cause as far back as the patient’s prenatal life, thus involving the physical and psychic disposition of the parents at the time of conception and pregnancy—a view that seems not at all improbable in certain cases—such an attitude would be more justifiable than the arbitrary selection of a definite point of neurotic origin in the individual life of the patient” (Jung, CW 16, 257-258).
“The whole life of the individual is nothing but the process of giving birth to himself; indeed, we should be fully born when we die.” Erich Fromm
Lecture: Birth and rebirth are powerful themes that can shape a person’s development within analysis at any age and stage of life. They contain timeless and profound archetypal and developmental meanings that stimulate our development and relationship to the Self. This lecture will focus on ideas regarding birth and rebirth, and their expression in analysis. The ways that analysis can give birth to the self will come to life through imagery, session dialogue, and Dr. Marlo’s inner experience in her work with a patient who experienced psychic birth through analysis.
Workshop: Birth of the Self How can analysis birth the self? We will explore this question by illuminating ideas about birth. Nascent stirrings of the Self often initiate the labor of analytic work, which can be influenced by our life stories, including our birth story.
Birth is a topic that is pregnant with meaning. It can be a signifier of the un-symbolized, unimagined, and un-experienced. It can manifest as a regressive, developmental experience, suffused with body or implicit memory. Birth can also act as a symbol or metaphor, and be expressed as a second birth or rebirth. Finally, it may emerge in the efflorescence of self-development involving a more related connection to the Self–a precursor to more complete development, heralding transformations in being and spirit.
These ideas come to life through Dr. Marlo’s presentation of an emergent process of birth, development, and transformation from over 15 years of analysis with a woman who began analysis dissociated from her self/Self.
Using evocative imagery, session dialogue, and Dr. Marlo’s inner experience, this workshop intimately examines what happens behind the consulting room door, allowing participants to reflect on their experience in analysis and examine the practice of analysis and its transformative potential.

Birth of the Self
Saturday, January 31, 2015 – 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
First Unitarian Universalist Church
1187 Franklin Street,
San Francisco, CA
Helen Marlo, PhD; John Beebe, PhD; Karen Peoples, PhD; Beverly Zabriskie, LCSW
How can analysis birth the self?
This program explores clinical and developmental processes that frame a response to this question, illuminating developmental and archetypal ideas about birth and interpersonal trauma, through classical and contemporary theory and research.
Significantly expanding upon Dr. Marlo’s previous work, this workshop chronicles over fifteen years of analysis with a woman who began treatment in a dissociated state. Using imagery, session dialogue, and Dr. Marlo’s inner experience, the presentation provides an opportunity to examine what happens behind the consulting room door, allowing participants to intimately explore the practice of analysis and its transformative potential.
Three renowned analysts – Dr. Beebe, Dr. Peoples, and Ms. Zabriskie – each of whom has made influential contributions to Jungian and relational psychoanalysis, will be discussants of Dr. Marlo’s presentation. These leaders in the field offer different insights on the material as they address the self/Self, trauma, the relational unconscious, transformation, and emotion – “from myth to neuroscience.”
