The IAAP Non-Discrimination Policy:
Along with challenges and losses that the coronavirus pandemic has brought upon our world, the spirit of our time has also brought a wave of change of perception, revealing some of the ills of the global political and socio-economic order. The long history of deeply ingrained racial, economic, gender and other inequalities are being challenged in different parts of the world, demanding a new landscape where some ills may begin to heal.
A policy of non-discrimination is defined in the IAAP Constitution.
Our members are expected to follow a policy of non-discrimination on the basis of race, religion, ethnic origin, gender, and sexual orientation. This includes activities of IAAP professional groups, such as membership in a professional society, training programs, and events for the public at large, sponsored by the various Societies.
The Non-Discrimination Policy is a regular part of the IAAP website and can be found in “About the IAAP dropdown”. Because of its actuality we have now additionally placed this text here in the front of the website.
IAAP, International Association for Analytical Psychology
The International Association for Analytical Psychology, IAAP was founded in 1955 by a group of Jungian Analysts to sustain and promote the work of C. G. Jung. Today the IAAP recognizes 69 Group Members (societies) throughout the world, and around 3500 analysts trained in accordance with standards established by the Association.
Since the late 1990’s the IAAP has been engaged in providing training possibilities for people who live in places where no registered training to become a Jungian Analyst with membership of the IAAP is available. The result of this is that the IAAP now has training facilities and qualified Jungian Analysts in all continents.
The aims of the IAAP are: 1. To promote the study of Analytical Psychology 2. To disseminate knowledge of Analytical Psychology 3. To require the maintenance of high standards of training, practice, and ethical conduct 4. To hold Congresses. In addition to the triennial IAAP Congresses, the IAAP also support international conferences around the world, and during the last years the IAAP has actively taken part in joint conferences with universities in recognition of the importance of the connection to the scientific world. This is also reflected in the growing support by the IAAP of research in the Analytical Psychological field.
IAAP and the coronavirus
Since the beginning of 2020 we have been facing a globally extremely difficult situation, and in many areas the affect of the corona virus has completely changed the life for numerous people. Many of our colleagues around the world have provided psychological aid for the victims of the virus. The IAAP has made three videos where IAAP Vice-President Emilija Kiehl interviews Jungian Analysts from China, Italy and France on the psychological aid for victims of coronavirus. Also our Italian colleague, Chiara Tozzi has made a video “Staying together”. All videos can be watched in the Resources dropdown / Videos
The coronavirus has also inspired several research projects on dreams during the pandemic.
You may read about these projects in the News Archive. Here you can also read about the psychological aid in China, Italy and France.
Although our colleagues work for free, financial support for both psychological aid and research is necessary. Please use the donate button at the bottom of this page if you want to support the work.
