How do I become a Jungian Analyst?

griemiller03In the majority of cases, established groups or societies of Jungian analysts conduct analytic training with guidance from the International Association for Analytical Psychology. The first step to becoming an analyst, therefore, is to identify a local or regional society in your area and determine whether they are a training society and if so what requirements they have set for admission to their program. A complete list of societies with web site or other contact information may be found by clicking here on “Members of the IAAP” under the menu option “About the IAAP” on the Home page. In most instances minimal requirements will include prior clinical training in a mental health field such as clinical social work, psychology, or psychiatry, and at least 100 hours of personal analysis with a Jungian analyst. Other requirements of the individual particular training society may also apply. Beyond a establishing the minimal set of requirements for training, the IAAP is not responsible for the particular details of individual society training programs such as schedules, examination requirements or curriculum content. In a limited number of areas, such as parts of Asia, Africa, and Latin America and some countries in Eastern Europe, the International Association facilitates analytic training for Analytical Psychology in collaboration with established training societies through the Router Training Program. This training option is not available in North America, Europe, or those countries in Latin America or Asia or Africa where analytic societies are already established. If no IAAP society exists in your region, you may contact the IAAP secretariat at This email address is being protected from spambots.
