The Role of Unconscious Awareness of Teachers within Teacher-child Relationship

Elçin Gölbaşı, Alev Önder


This article is a descriptive study which aims to investigate preschool teachers’ awareness of their own unconscious and the contribution of unconscious processes to educational activities. It presents a literary review on education as a meeting of the teacher and student at a certain point in time and space, not only at a knowledge level but also with their inner psychological processes. The classroom is an arena in which teachers question themselves via interaction, face their true self and unique characteristics. The educational environment can be purified with the search for the teacher’s awareness of the unconscious by eliminating ambitions, prejudices and negative psychological experiences. Only then does it transform into an environment of symbolism, higher level thinking and free thinking.
