of Jungian Analysts
APPLYING FOR TRAINING
The following information is provided as a guideline for those interested in applying for analytic training with the C.G. Jung Institute of ANZSJA (ANZSJA CGJI). ANZSJA is authorised to conduct Jungian Analytic Training by the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP), the peak body for Jungian analytic training. ANZSJA is the only organisation so authorised in Australia and New Zealand.
ANZSJA CGJI offers a comprehensive analytic training for suitably qualified and experienced applicants. The training is cohort-based with previous intakes occurring in 1998, 1999, 2006, 2013 and 2022. The next training intake will not take place for several years.
Please note that while the following prerequisites are based on the 2022 intake of Trainees they remain a guide for those intending to apply for the next cohort training. Although selection is several years away it is recommended that potential applicants read the following information carefully.
Prerequisites for Application to Analytic Training
The core of analytic training is the personal analysis which facilitates a deep relationship with the unconscious, psychological development and clinical integrity. In order to apply the applicant requires a minimum 100 hours of individual (not group) analysis with an ANZSJA or other IAAP member Analyst, at least 40 hours of which must be in the twelve months immediately prior to the selection interviews.
In order to apply, an applicant requires a minimum of 20 hours supervision with an ANZSJA/IAAP analyst of their individual psychotherapeutic work with patients/clients in a therapeutic setting in the 18 months immediately prior to selection interviews.
Depth Psychotherapy Practice
All applicants must demonstrate that they have the capacity to maintain or establish a depth psychotherapy practice. It is an advantage if applicants are already engaged in psychotherapeutic work (such as psychotherapy, counselling or related activity) with patients/clients in a one-to-one setting.
Applicants must belong to a relevant professional body, which has its own code of ethics, or be registered with a responsible authority, such as a Professional Board. Applicants must hold professional indemnity insurance covering their psychotherapeutic practice and ensure that they comply with all legal requirements.
Academic and Professional Qualifications
An applicant must have an academic or professional qualification equal or equivalent to a tertiary degree.
The Jungian model values diversity of life experience and academic orientation. Though professional qualifications in psychotherapy, psychology, social work, counselling, medicine, psychiatry and related fields are an advantage, qualifications in many other fields, such as (but not limited to) creative arts, humanities, religious studies, law, languages, literature and the sciences are also welcome.
The ANZSJA CGJI Analytic Training is not an introductory course in psychotherapy or counselling skills. If the applicant has a qualification unrelated to therapeutic practice it is recommended that they have completed, or be in the process of undertaking, training in a recognized program of basic counselling, psychotherapy or psychological theory and skills.
Fit and Proper Person
An applicant must be a fit and proper person i.e. someone who is of good character who is capable of ethical judgement and who abides by such judgement.
Applicants must provide a copy or copies of the variously named police check documents available in each Australian state and New Zealand. Trainees agree to abide by the ANZSJA Code Of Ethics Guidelines For Working Practice.
As outlined above, it is an advantage for applicants to have a relevant and recognized professional qualification which carries therapeutic responsibility. It is also an advantage for applicants to have worked for at least three years in a therapeutic role. The practice of analysis draws upon the whole personality of the analyst and so, in addition to academic qualifications and professional experience, the life experience and psychological development of the applicant is given significant consideration in the selection process.
Applying for analytic training is a significant professional and personal step. We encourage those who are interested to undertake the analytic and supervisory prerequisites and attend ANZSJA Professional Development events and seminars in order to better acquaint themselves with ANZSJA Analysts and the analytic and clinical perspective of ANZSJA members.
There is no automatic transfer from another IAAP training programme. An applicant who has partially completed an IAAP recognised training applies and is assessed in the same manner as other applicants. Because the ANZSJA training is cohort-based, opportunities for recognition of prior learning are limited. Applicants wishing to transfer are considered on an individual basis and should contact the Directors of Training to discuss their situation.
All applications and materials relating to admission or progression within training are confidential. An application for admission to training will include the following items:
- Completed application form
- Certified academic transcripts
- Curriculum Vitae
- Autobiography of personal and psychological development of up to 2,000 words
- Letter/s from all Analyst/s with whom the applicant has worked, stating the number of analytic hours and the dates of the analyses. (NOTE: personal Analysts do not recommend for or against acceptance into training, nor are they asked or permitted to provide any supporting material).
- Letter/s from Supervisor/s stating the number of supervision hours and the dates when the supervision occurred. (NOTE: Supervisors do not recommend for or against acceptance into training).
- A non-refundable application administration fee of AU$200. Please note that fees are subject to change.
