The Philadelphia Jung Institute is engaged in the selection and training of certified Jungian analysts in collaboration with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. Graduates of this program are eligible for membership in the International Association of Analytical Psychology, the international accrediting body of Jungian analysts and institutes.
The analytic training program consists of small colloquia devoted to the study of Jungian psychology, an in-depth training analysis, a symbolic approach to the psyche and the clinical practice of Jungian analysis. Large group lectures are included in the training, coordinated with visiting analysts and scholars from all over the world.
Candidates for training meet 13 hours per weekend during the two academic semesters, twice yearly in intensive weekend seminars and twice yearly at four-day I-RSJA conferences. Rigorous evaluations, papers, clinical presentations and extensive supervision as well as written and oral examinations are all essential elements of the training process.
Participation in the Philadelphia Jung Seminar for a minimum of six months is necessary before applying for training; however, it is strongly recommended that potential candidates participate in the seminar for at least one year before applying for training status.
Admission to the training program is determined by analysts of the Philadelphia Jung Institute and a national committee of analysts from the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. Once accepted into the analyst training program, training generally takes between five and eight years. Although training expenses vary, $12,000 - $15,000 per year is a conservative estimate. Training expenses include one’s individual Jungian analysis and supervision throughout training, local seminar or colloquium fees, books, and travel expenses.
