Guided Affective Imagery with Children and Adolescents by Hanscarl Leuner

By Hanscarl Leuner

A significant shift in our perception of human psychology has happened some time past two decades. study scientists have well-known that the stimulus-response versions that characterised the dominant "objec­ tive behaviorism" of the interval among 1910 and 1960 had over­ appeared the function of wakeful idea, cognitive mapping, and similar centrally generated information-processing as primary human features. certainly, even the psychoanalytic theorizing of that pe­ riod put nice emphasis on "drives," "energy displacements," and subconscious phenomena. at the present time, we more and more realize that humans are curious, information-gathering creatures with a differential emotional constitution that's heavily tied to the character of in­ formation processing and to difficulties of which means in addition to to the pride of physiological wishes. within the easy fields of social psy­ chology and character thought, expanding consciousness is being paid to how humans shape constructs of the complicated ambiguities of way of life and social relationships and the way they mentally play and replay those in waking or in nocturnal-sleeping myth shape. The scientific equipment built by way of Professor Leuner and his col­ leagues exemplify the view that human truth is composed not just of the direct reviews of environmental stimulation or social interplay but in addition of the personal truth built as we replay those experi­ ences in our day and evening desires and form them into symbolic, metaphorical, or allegorical modes.

Example text

The elephant appears treading stormily along with his trunk raised and trumpeting. He discovers the boy and heads straight for him. The boy flees and runs to a village. The elephant follows him there, too. Finally, Erwin succeeds in running away to an old farmhouse. He locks the door with a key. But the elephant demolishes the top part of the door with his trunk and pokes it into the house in order to grab Erwin. The scene is clearly anxiety-laden; no solution is found. The situation is different for the younger Heinz.

What the wood has to offer may therefore be very different for the younger and the older patient and can give important clues to the unconscious experience. Animals, such as a shy hare or a deer, as well as tramps and hunters and occasionally even a witch may emerge from the woods. Younger children, particularly, may also wish to enter the protecting woods. In this case, the woods also seems to have maternal qualities, in the sense of protecting and guarding, as if the child would like to "crawl under her skirt" for his own protection.

To the child, the father is the admired and unattainable model, whom he constantly overactively emulates, only to be repeatedly disappointed because he does not succeed. Such was the case in a swimming course, which the father took along with him. From time to time, Heinz fearlessly put his head under water and made a few quick swimming movements but could not let himself be calmly supported by the water. In school, Heinz always wanted to be first. The grade of "B" was considered pretty bad; a "c" was a catastrophe.
