The Center for Story and Symbol
About the Center and Dr. Jonathan Young
The Center offers continuing education seminars and workshops on the psychology of fairy tales, mythic stories, creativity, movies as mythic imagination, and law and ethics for psychotherapists. CE hours are available for psychologists, marriage & family therapists, teachers, social workers, nurses, and other mental health professionals. Our courses meet requirements in most states.
Jonathan Young — psychologist and storyteller — assisted Joseph Campbell at seminars. Dr. Young went on to create and chair the Mythological Studies department at the Pacifica Graduate Institute, where he now teaches in the distance learning program. He is a story consultant on movies, most recently for Sony/Columbia. Dr. Young has a private practice in Santa Barbara, and also does consultation by phone.
Presented at an introductory level, the Center’s courses are not just for psychotherapists. They are open to all those interested in archetypal perspectives. Center workshops and seminars require no advance preparation; however, participants are provided with a recommended reading list as part of their class materials.
