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.Paula Smith Marder

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.

ELEMENTS OF THE PROGRAM

ArrowPersonal Analysis
Jung placed great value on the development of consciousness in relationship to self and to society. To further this process, personal analysis is fundamental and required throughout the training process as are training seminars conducted in small groups. It is recommended that, for a significant period, analysis will take place two or more times a week. Candidates are expected to be in face to face (in person) analysis with an IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology) certified analyst throughout their training experience. The personal analysis is confidential at all times. No information regarding any candidate may be solicited from the personal analyst by any member of the faculty.

ArrowCurriculum
Candidates are required to complete a series of seminars based upon selected volumes of the Collected Works of C. G. Jung. Elective seminars are also offered to all candidates. All Candidates are expected to attend a minimum number of elective seminars each year. Special weekend seminars and workshops are scheduled through the year.

Arrow The Training Stages
Training in Jungian psychology is personal and individual. Open, mutual discussion is encouraged between the candidates and faculty in hopes of fostering personal and professional growth. The training program is organized in a series of stages: Preliminary, Candidacy and Control. Progression from one stage to the next is determined by an individual evaluation that includes evaluations from supervisors and seminar instructors as well as annual personal interviews with the Review Committee or the Certifying Board. An Annual Theoretical Examination is administered each spring during the first three years of training. (Provisions will be made for those with learning disabilities.) Progression in the program does not necessarily imply eventual certification. The process of evaluation is continuous up to and including certification as a Jungian analyst by the Certifying Board, which occurs after the satisfactory completion of all requirements. At any time during the process of training, the Review Committee or the Certifying Board may decide to dismiss a candidate from the training program. That decision may be appealed by the candidate as described in the Appeals Process below.

ArrowClinical Supervision
Supervision is an essential component of analytic training. Candidates must be in clinical supervision weekly throughout training. Candidates in the final stage of training engage in "control analysis," i.e., an intensive supervision of an ongoing case. During the first two stages of training, candidates will receive supervision one hour per week with a faculty analyst of their choice at no charge. Candidates are expected to work with a different supervisor each year. For the first two years, candidates also participate in a weekly case colloquium as part of the core curriculum. The final stage of training is the Control Stage. Each candidate is to be in face to face control analysis regularly with one or more analysts. The candidate is to report to the certifying board until it is determined that he or she is ready for certification. Work with two or more control analysts may be sequential or simultaneous.

Arrow Clinic Participation
Throughout the training program, each candidate participates in either the Kieffer E. Frantz Clinic and/or the Hilde Kirsch Children's Center. Candidates in the first two stages of training candidates are required to contribute three client hours per week in exchange for weekly supervision. Candidates in the Control stage contribute two client hours per week, and they are asked to pay for Control Supervision.

Arrow Schedule
Seminars, case colloquia, and workshops will be held, as noted in the Schedule of Classes, either at the C. G. Jung Institute or in analysts' homes or offices. Required courses for Preliminary and Candidacy Stage candidates are scheduled on Thursdays (afternoon and evening). Elective courses are scheduled on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Workshops are generally scheduled on weekends. From time to time, the core curriculum is taught in a different sequence, although all trainees are expected to complete all seminars and colloquia requirements.

COST OF TRAINING

As of Fall 2014, tuition is $3500 per year for candidates in the Preliminary and Candidacy Stages, and $2200 per year for candidates in the Control Stage. Payment by credit card may be arranged upon payment of a handling fee for each transaction. Fees for personal analysis, control analysis, and certain other activities are additional and are established on an individual basis. One hour per week of supervision for candidates in the Preliminary and Candidacy Stages is provided with no charge.

TRAINING, FACULTY, AND CURICULUM MEETINGS

All analyst members of the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles are considered members of the Training, Faculty and Curriculum Committee. The committee meets three or four times a year, though additional meetings may be scheduled. Representatives of the Admissions Committee, the Review Committee and the Certifying Board are always encouraged to attend. Past Directors of Training commit to attend for a minimum of one year beyond their tenure as Directors. The purpose of the meetings is to discuss and coordinate any issues or activities related to Training. Policy changes related to training may also be made at this meeting. The agenda is determined by the Director(s) of Training, and sent to the membership at least ten days prior to the meeting.

APPEALS PROCESS

When a candidate wishes to appeal a decision made by either the Certifying Board or the Review Committee, he or she begins the process by writing a letter to the Board of Directors fully describing the complaint. An appeal of a training committee decision must be made within six months of the date of that decision.
The Director of Training subsequently meets with the candidate for the purpose of clarifying, and possibly resolving, the complaint. In addition, the Director of Training contacts the original committee to inform them that a complaint has been received, and that a report describing the committees meeting with the candidate should be sent to the Board of Directors with a copy to the Training Director.

If the complaint is unresolved, and the appeals process is to proceed, the Board of Directors will convene a committee of five analysts who have been certified for more than five years and who have no dual relationships with the candidate. The candidate is informed as to the composition of the committee and may request that one or more analysts be recused. The request may or may not be granted by the Board. After the committee meets, it makes a recommendation to the Board of Directors. The decision of the Board of Directors is final.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION

ArrowRequirements
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.

Arrow Non-Discrimination Policy
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.

Certified analysts from other Jungian Institutes who apply to our Institute shall possess a license that permits them to practice psychotherapy in the state of California and be members in good standing of the IAAP. A meeting with the Certifying Board will establish the procedure for entering the Society.

Jungian Analysts certified by Jungian Institutes not members of the IAAP who apply to our Institute shall possess a license that permits them to practice psychotherapy in the state of California and shall be evaluated by the Certifying Board or a committee chosen by the Certifying Board. This committee shall decide whether or not to accept the analyst into advanced status in the Analyst Training Program of the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. This committee will also determine any training requirements beyond the minimum requirements.

Minimum Requirements:

  • One year in the Control Stage with Control Supervision. More time may be required by the Certifying Board.
  • A written Control Case to be presented to the Certifying Board at the end of no less than one year.
  • Elective courses during each year in the Control Stage. The number of hours will be specified by the committee.

PSY.D. PROGRAM

Beginning February 1, 2013, the Institute is offering a PsyD Program which is open only to graduates of the analyst training program. The PsyD Program encompasses both the analytic training process as the preliminary instructional component of studies for the PsyD, and the production of a project which results in a written and publishable paper. Publication or a public presentation of the Doctoral project will be encouraged. The Project will focus attention on theory and its applications in practice, complementary to the Control Case paper, which focuses on practice as it is informed by theory. It should reach beyond established knowledge toward either a revisioning or an entirely new and unique perspective.

The annual fee for enrollment and participation in the PsyD Program will be determined by the Executive Committee and is expected to be equivalent to the fee for continued enrollment during the control stage of analytic training. Further details are available.
