In 2004, thirteen Jungian analysts founded the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association (JPA), certified by the International Association for Analytical Psychology. Our community, based in NYC, now consists of over 45 local and international analyst members including a growing number of JPA graduates, and 25 analysts-in-training. Our members teach, lecture, lead seminars and workshops, participate in national and international conferences, and are highly regarded and widely published in both professional and public domains.
The JPA follows the trajectory of C. G. Jung’s work as a theory of psychodynamics and the basis for effective analytic practice. Our mission is to cultivate the continuing education and professional competence of its members, to present programs and research that bring the creative understanding and applications of Jungian psychology in their contemporary conceptions to the larger professional, artistic, political, cultural, and scientific communities, to sponsor professional conferences, facilitate access to Jungian analysis through a referral service, and to train the next generation for professional licensure and international recognition as certified Jungian analysts.
The JPA is a Section 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization Chartered by the State of New York.
As a learning community, valuing the rights of the individual in communities begins when we speak to each other through active engagement. We reaffirm our dedication to the growth of consciousness and conscience, and to deepening the dialogue within the individual psyche and between persons and groups.
Our practice includes looking within, looking among, and looking out, as well as taking action based on these depth psychological practices and humane imagination.
