The Jungian Training in Analytical Psychotherapy

The Jungian Training in Analytical Psychotherapy at the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy was founded in 1990.  It aims to provide an experience of learning from which its graduates will qualify as competent and responsible practitioners of Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy. In support of this aim, the Training Committee supports and encourages the ongoing development of a lively, open-minded and well-informed culture of Jungian Psychotherapy in the Midlands through the provision of an annual series of public lectures.

The Jungian Training currently offers three training options:

  • One year Foundation Course in Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy (Pre-Clinical).
  • Two year Infant Observation Training.
  • Four year Training in Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy (Clinical qualifying training leading to UKCP registration and Associate Professional membership of the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy.

Application for the 2016 training is now open with closing date of 30 November 2015.

The Jungian Training recognizes that good practice in Analytical Psychotherapy is rooted not only in a sound understanding of the theory and practice of the profession, but also in the authenticity and creativity of the practitioner’s self-knowledge and participation in analytic process. The training aims to encourage the development of personal authority in the trainees that will enable them to manage creatively the diversity of the profession of analytical psychotherapy.

In this aim, we remain true to Jung’s philosophy regarding the ongoing development of autonomous individuals who belong to a culture, not to an orthodoxy of analytical theory and practice. While the teaching programme is grounded by the theories of C.G. Jung and their development by post-Jungians, subjects or theories are taught by specialists in their own field as well as specialists from the Jungian culture; together they represent the diversity and richness of analytic experience.
