JUNGIAN & POST-JUNGIAN
A 12-month online certificate course on key concepts of Jungian theory and clinical application.
This course is aimed at psychotherapists, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, coaches, and those working in the mental health and wellness field, wishing to understand the fundamentals of Jungian and post-Jungian psychology in clinical practice. This is a unique focused and in-depth learning opportunity in Jungian and post-Jungian theory and clinical application, with a global faculty of senior Jungian clinicians and academics.
The psychotherapist is not just working for this particular patient, but for himself as well and his own soul, and in so doing he is perhaps laying an infinitesimal grain in the scales of humanity’s soul. Small and invisible as this contribution may be, it is yet an opus magnum.
(Carl Gustav Jung)

The Centre for Applied Jungian Studies exists to promote the research, learning and dissemination of depth psychology and studies, with a focus on Jungian psychology, in a non-linear, non-traditional, fashion. Utilising disruptive technologies the Centre delivers the concepts and applications, developed within the framework of depth psychology, to a wider audience than has historically been given access to these ideas and tools. This approach reflects the global paradigm shift to learning being made more widely and democratically accessible. This is facilitated in part by the non-localisation opportunities for learning created by the WWW, and the radical evolution and sophistication of communication platforms over the last two decades. This aspiration maintains the highest regard for the value and integrity of depth psychological theory and practice. It acknowledges the debt owed to the pioneers of depth psychology and their legacy, as well as the tireless work of the clinicians and scholars who have furthered the field of study over the last century.
The Centre for Applied Jungian Studies is committed to excellence in research, teaching and practice.
‘Jungian and post-Jungian Clinical Concepts’ was inspired by the challenge presented by the Jungian scholars and clinicians at the ‘Spectre of the Other in Jungian Psychology,’ an International Association of Jungian Studies conference that took place in Cape Town in 2017. Where, the urgent need to reach those previously excluded from the teaching and ideas of Jungian psychology, be it for reasons of location, economics or historical prejudices, was unequivocally sounded. In its own modest way, this course sets out to achieve that. By virtue of offering top-class tuition in Jungian psychotherapy, outside of its traditional setting, being non-localised (online), and a tiered fee structure, the aim is explicitly to democratise the learning opportunities offered by Jungian psychology, broaden the reach of these tools and to be as inclusive as possible.

The course started in May of last year and has been both fascinating and brilliant. The course ends in May with the final module on the Political Pdyche by Professor Andrew Samuel’s. What a year its been . I couldn’t recommend the Centre for Applied Jungian Studies more highly.
