Analyst Training Program
The C.G. Jung Institute offers a structured continuing education program that provides intensive analytic training to qualified mental health professionals. The program leads to certification as a Jungian analyst.
The Analyst Training Program integrates theory and practice through seminars based on the Collected Works of C.G. Jung, participation in case colloquia, and individual case supervision. Certification as an analyst is determined by the Certifying Board after satisfactory completion of all requirements of the program. Certified Jungian analysts who have completed this program are elected to membership in the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, at which time they become members of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP) and are awarded a Diploma in Analytical Psychology.
Continuing education units for candidates who are licensed as clinical psychologists, marriage and family therapists, clinical social workers, and nurses are available for each course offering in the program.

Qualifications for Application for Admission
Prior to application for training the individual must have completed a minimum of 100 hours of personal analysis with an IAAP certified Jungian analyst and must be in analysis with an IAAP certified Jungian analyst at the time of applying to the program. The Admissions Committee encourages applicants to have consistent Jungian analysis during the year preceding application for training.
The applicant must legally be able to practice psychotherapy in the state of California. This means the applicant must be licensed in the state of California or be registered as a psychological assistant or a registered intern. If not licensed, the individual must be very close to licensing. Professional experience and clinical skills will be evaluated.
If the applicant is accepted into the first or Preliminary Stage of training before being licensed, he or she may not be advanced to the second stage of Candidacy until a license to practice psychotherapy in the state of California has been acquired. In all instances, the Preliminary Stage of training is a probationary period.
In selecting candidates for training, we are looking for individuals with flexible and mature egos who have the potential to think symbolically and to engage with the psyche of their patients. This program is not only academic. It includes the development of oneself as a person who can engage with the unconscious in an open, reflective, and collaborative manner. To this end, personal analysis is of central importance both before and throughout training. Applicants will be evaluated through their written applications and meetings with members of the Admissions Committee.
The C. G. Jung Institute administers its policies for admission and throughout the training program without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, ethnic or national origin, marital status, age or disability as designated by applicable law.
