The International Analytical Psychology Student Program at the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco

Program Description

The International Analytical Psychology Student Program is an advanced training opportunity offered by the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. The program, begun in 1996, offers a two-year course of intensive study in analytical psychology to a mental health professional from a country where formal Jungian analytic training is not available. Our most recent students have been from Taiwan, Hungary, Poland, India, Colombia and Romania. Past students have included a psychiatrist from Korea, an academic psychologist from China, and a psychology student from Bulgaria.

The International Analytical Psychology Student Program is both academic and clinical, and is intended to further personal development and enhance skills as a depth psychotherapist. It is important to note that the International Analytical Psychology Student Program is different from both our Analytic Training Program and our Internship Program for predoctoral psychology students working at our Outpatient Clinic. However, the International Student attends seminars with our first- and second-year analytic candidates, participates as an intern in our Clinic (both working under supervision with patients and taking didactic courses with the predoctoral interns). Additionally, he or she participates in a personal analysis and consultation with analyst members of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.

The International Student will not be certified as an analyst as a result of participation in our program. However, she or he will experience a substantial grounding for the further study of analytical psychology. Most of our former International Students have subsequently become Jungian analysts via the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP).

Qualifications

Applicants to the International Analytical Psychology Student Program must have sufficient academic preparation to be able to participate in coursework at the post-graduate level. The applicant must also be a practicing mental health professional who has completed a program of study in his or her country of residence that places the applicant within a reasonable range of the qualifications of our candidates in analytic training. The student must be a practitioner who has demonstrated personal and professional qualities that accord with the standards set forth in The C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco Analytic Training Program brochure. [Link to Training page]

The applicant must be sufficiently proficient in English to be able to participate in the program described above and may be asked to take an English proficiency exam, such as TOEFL, for the purposes of verification.

Expenses

There are no fees or tuition for seminars and didactic sessions for the International Student at the C. G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. Supervision, personal analysis and consultation are also offered at no cost to the International Student. The International Student must be prepared to accept financial responsibility for travel and living expenses that will be incurred while participating in the program, and will have to cover the cost of room and board, medical insurance, and commuting within the Bay Area. (Our Committee will offer guidance and orientation regarding these aspects of living in the Bay Area). We estimate the minimum living cost for a single individual to be about U.S. $17,000 – $19,000 for each year of training, and the cost of living in the Bay Area can be a good deal more. Depending on contributions from donors, a modest monthly stipend may be available to help offset some of these expenses.
