Most of the Jung's theories regarding the structure and exploration of the psyche are covered in this site through themes and key-concepts (see the list below).

First of all, you should know that Jung's approach of psyche has many sources of inspiration. We list some of them below:

    2. Jung's own experiences with his association method;

    3. Jung cooperation with Freud and his experience with the Freudian psychoanalysis;

    4. Jung's exploration of the unconscious after he left Freud and the Psychoanalytic Association during his own confrontation with the archetypes and the Self;

    Jung and Dreams pictureDream Interpretation
    A great deal of inspiration brought Jung in regard to the dream interpretation method. First of all, he applied the compensation concept and the prospective approach to the theory of dreams.
    Concerning the interpretation technique, Jung added more features such as the
    amplification method consisting in finding additional material to the dream associations drawn from mythology, folklore, religion and so forth. This way he enlarged the genuine content of the dream to include more images and symbols that further help us understand its meaning. Learn more about his method here.
