Training to be a Jungian Analyst with the Australian and New Zealand Society of Jungian Analysts is a deepening personal and professional experience. Analysis is a unique, intensive form of psychotherapy that fosters personal development and liberation from unsatisfying or painful patterns of living. In pursuit of those goals, the individual in analysis (analysand) and the analyst work together in close collaboration. They pay careful attention to the interactions of personal and interpersonal experience, of past and present, of body and mind, of fantasy and reality. Such an in-depth exploration can set in motion a process of deep personal transformation.

ANZJSA Analytic Training offers the opportunity to study a unique and powerful way to psychologically approach our internal lives, thoughts, emotions and challenges. The trainee learns and develops extensive skills in Jungian and post Jungian psychoanalytic technique. During your training you will engage a range of approaches exploring Jungian and post Jungian theory and practice. Seminars are held at residential and regional programs and are concurrent with your own personal analysis, supervision, clinical work, infant observation experience and seminars and a psychiatric placement.

This is a challenging clinical training. For many trainees it is among the most profound intellectual and emotional experiences of their lives. Training as a Jungian Analyst with ANZSJA can lead to many different opportunities, and after qualifying trainees incorporate their training into their personal and professional lives in a variety of ways. We welcome applications from people with a wide range of personal, professional and academic backgrounds.

The C.G. Jung Institute of ANZSJA offers a comprehensive Jungian Analytic Training to suitably qualified and experienced clinicians. This CGJI/ANZSJA training is authorized by the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP). ANZSJA is the only organization so delegated in Australia and New Zealand.

We are currently accepting expressions of interest in training. We do not begin a new training group until the previous intake (2013) has completed its formal curriculum. However if you are interested it is important to be aware of the necessary preparation time and processes before applying, see ‘Applying for Training’.

The training is a minimum of five years, with three major stages of progression: Preliminary Stage (Trainee), Stage I (Trainee) and Stage II (Candidate). For more information, see ‘Training Process’.

Successful completion of all Stage II requirements leads to certification as a Jungian Analyst. Graduates may then apply for membership of ANZSJA. Acceptance leads automatically to membership of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP).

The information outlined here is based on the requirements of the 2013 intake. This information will be reviewed and updated before the next iteration of training.
