Basic Requirements

Applicants must have completed a minimum of 150 hours of personal depth psychotherapy over a period of at least two years prior to commencing the training programme.

A total of five ninety minute seminars will take place during training weekends every second month (from Friday evening through Sunday lunch time), amounting to six weekends per year. These seminars will take place at the C G Jung Centre in Rosebank, Cape Town over a period of four years. The curriculum covers theoretical aspects of analytical psychology and its application to clinical practice. The curriculum includes basic concepts, complexes, archetypes, connection of Jungian concepts to psychodynamic theories, a Jungian view of psychopathology, analytic technique (including dream interpretation and active imagination), typology, transference and counter-transference, transcultural issues, developmental theory and aspects of psycho-neurobiology as it applies to clinical practice.



Closing date for applications is 31 August 2022.
