International Association of Analytical Psychology
Description of the JPA IAAP Certifying Program (International Association of Analytical Psychology):
Analytic Training Program
The JPA trains a number of qualified candidates in the theory and practice of Jungian Psychoanalysis. Through rigorous classes, community lectures and colloquia, private tutorials and supervised clinical practice, we educate and prepare candidates for their professional lives and practice as psychoanalysts.
Overview of the Program
The training of analytic candidates takes place within the body of the larger learning community in which both candidates and faculty continue to learn from interactive and mutual discussion of their work and at the edges of theory and experience. The candidates in the JPA educational program are composed of individuals who have qualified for admission to the program by meeting the prerequisites and passing through all the requirements of the admissions process. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be qualified for membership in the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis (NAAP) and the International Association for Analytic Psychology (IAAP).
The JPA training program is designed with the personal and professional commitments of its candidates in mind, most of whom are in practice and/or in mental health positions. Candidates are encouraged to move at their own pace. The program may be completed in a minimum of four years of full-time participation.
There are 33 weeks of coursework divided into three 11-week trimesters per year.
Each trimester is composed of ten classes, plus one community required clinical evening per trimester. This meeting also serves as a course feedback mechanism and an opportunity to engage the full body of candidates and faculty. Classes are usually held Monday evenings in New York City, divided into 3 class periods.
The trimester-long academic courses in the JPA curriculum are of three types, each typically occurring in one of the time periods. Of primary importance is a series of Jung Reading courses. The total series is four years in length, and is required for all candidates. This class cycle endeavors to cover all of Jung’s major works. After the fourth year of this cycle candidates may continue to take courses in this series as the content of the fourth year course will rotate amongst relevant topics in the Jungian corpus.
The second type of class includes all of the areas of proficiency, and may include Jung volumes. This category includes courses on general psychological theory, mythology, sciences, history, psychopathology, and clinical technique, among others.
Finally, for two of the three trimesters per year, candidates engage in a content-driven Case Seminar of a minimum of eight trimesters. LT candidates are required to participate in case seminar throughout their training.
Colloquia and Practica
An on-going Dream Practicum is offered throughout a candidate’s participation in the program. These practica are held on 2 Sundays per trimester (6 per year), from 10 AM – 4 PM, and are taught or co-taught by different instructors.
Community Colloquia Weekends are held 3 times per year and are required throughout the program. The Friday to Sunday autumn and spring trimester colloquia are held at the Beekman Arms/Delamater Conference Center in Rhinebeck New York or a similar location. They include theoretical and clinical lectures, presentations of works-in-progress, seminars with visiting scholars or analysts, and community affairs. The winter Colloquium is on a Sunday and is held in New York City.
It is important that all candidates keep in mind that since the JPA is constantly refining its training program and since the nature of a learning community is one that engages in ongoing development, certain aspects of this curriculum may change over time.

Application to the IAAP Program
The JPA invites applications for training from individuals with a graduate degree, Master’s level or higher, from a registered degree-granting program in New York State or another recognized program. A degree in a mental health discipline is preferred, but applications from potentially qualified individuals with a graduate degree in other disciplines will be considered.
The JPA prefers, but does not require, the following:
Prior experience in the mental health field, preferably supervised experience as a psychotherapist. Prior analysis, preferably with a certified Jungian analyst. Although applicants are not required to have had analysis before entering the program, if they have had Jungian analysis prior to enrollment, those hours will be evaluated and if found acceptable, may be counted toward the 300 hours of Jungian analysis required for graduation from the JPA program. However, regardless of previous analytic hours, candidates must be in Jungian analysis during their entire training with the JPA
We have two application periods, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. Both periods admit for the following Fall. Application dates and deadlines are listed below.
To apply for training with the JPA, first please contact Andrea Hung, director of admissions, to schedule a preliminary interview. She can be reached at (212) 545-1496. You may also e-mail her at email@example.com. The preliminary interview will establish if the applicant is qualified and whether an application would be appropriate. If so, the applicant will fill out a form and return it to the director.
The director then establishes a panel of three JPA analysts who meet individually with the applicant. Upon recommendation by the panel that the applicant be considered for admission, the applicant is invited to participate in a portion of one of our weekend colloquium meetings, to give the applicant a sense of the learning community in action. The panel makes the final decision about acceptance after that meeting.
If the Admissions panel decides that it is advisable, it may require an applicant to complete additional preparation and/or submit additional materials prior to admission to the training program.
If the applicant is accepted, then 2 of the three members of the admissions panel, plus one other analyst chosen by the candidate during the first year of study becomes his/her advising committee. The advising committee follows and works with the candidate for the length of the program, serving as an advising, mediating and support group for the candidate.
Individuals who have already completed part of another training program in psychoanalysis and who wish to apply to the JPA program will be considered on a case-by-case basis and may be granted advanced standing.
