Field Placement/Internships

The C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles offers a one-year (renewable for a second year) half-time internship to individuals who have completed a masters degree in psychology or are enrolled in a clinical psychology doctoral program. Applicants are required to have completed two years of clinical experience and 100 hours of Jungian analysis; analysis continues during the internship. Internship hours may count toward MFT or psychology licensure. The internship program is a member of the California Psychology Internship Council (CAPIC). The internship begins mid-September and ends August 31 of each academic year.

The half-time internship is 20 hours per week, including one hour per week individual face-to-face supervision with a Jungian analyst, two hours per week group supervision with a Jungian analyst, two hours per week of didactic courses held on Wednesday evenings, and 10 hours per week conducting individual psychotherapy with clinic patients. Interns are responsible for conducting intake interviews with potential clinic patients and a written report of the interview; ongoing progress notes of each psychotherapy session turned in at the end of each month; reports on each patient who terminates treatment; annual reports summarizing the progress of each patient seen during the year; collection of clinic fees and submission of clinic fees to the institute bookkeeper on a monthly basis.

Interns are granted free membership in the Max and Lore Zeller library at the C.G. Jung Institute for the duration of their internship. Interns are also invited to attend all public lectures offered by the Jung Institute for free, except for fundraising events and those that are sold out, and may attend all elective seminars and workshops offered by the analyst training program of the Jung Institute.

VACATION

Interns may choose not to work on all major holidays: Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, as well as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur if these holidays are celebrated. The clinic will be closed between Christmas and New Year's Day to allow interns vacation time. Interns may also take a one-week vacation in the spring and any one other week of their choosing. The week of choice may be combined with the winter or spring vacation. If interns are aware of circumstances that require time away from the clinic, they should try to use the week of their choosing for such situations. If more time is needed, it must be discussed with the clinic director in advance.

CLINIC PROCEDURES

Prior to the beginning of the internship, usually in the summer, each new intern will receive a packet with a copy of the clinic manual, a clinic agreement form, and a clinic information form for personal information about the intern. The two forms must be returned before the beginning of the internship and the clinic manual must be read thoroughly. A Californian state requirement is that all people working in a licensed clinic must have a health screening by a physician, including a TB test. A note from the physician that the intern in found to be non-contagious must be on file at the clinic before the beginning of the internship.

APPLICATION

Applicant must have completed 100 hours of analysis with a certified Jungian analyst and have had two years of clinical experience before beginning the internship. In addition, the intern must continue to be in weekly personal Jungian analysis during the internship.
