Dreams in the time of Corona
An interest in the collective and archetypal symbols that are activated in dreams seems to be on the increase these days. Over the world activities related to dreams are taking place, such as social dreaming matrices and research projects etc. Here are the links to research projects that are open for contribution:
Dreaming in Times of Turmoil – Corona Virus and Dreams – Coronavirus und Träume (in German)
Art in the time of Corona
ARAS and the Art and Psyche Working Group, in collaboration, have developed a new project, Art in a Time of Global Crisis: Interconnection and Companionship, as an international outreach through art. The intention is to create a network of mutual support through art during this difficult time. Colleagues and friends from around the world, representing various cultures, geographical locations and life-styles, have been asked to contribute artistic images with commentaries that represent companionship, resilience and hope in the face of threat, fear and struggle. An image with brief commentary is posted each day (five days a week) in the curated “virtual gallery.” With a consistent presence of art that expands with each new contribution, we hope to weave a web of interconnectedness during this current time of global upheaval. You can join this worldwide community (without cost) by visiting the website https://aras.org/special-feature

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.
In addition to the abovementioned aims, the IAAP is an organization which takes responsibility for social and environmental issues. In accordance with this policy, we support projects with psychological care for victims of natural disasters, and we also support activities against climate change. It is possible to make donations for these purposes. The IAAP will currently inform about the support within these areas. Please use one of the donate-buttons below.
