Analytic Training Programs
There are two training programs offered by the JPA. The first is for those interested in becoming a Jungian analyst but do not need New York State licensing and leads to certification in IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology). The second is for those without a license and leads to certification as a licensed psychoanalyst (LP) in New York State, as well as certification in IAAP.
Following your preliminary discussion with the Director of Training, please download and fill out the form to apply to the JPA’s programs:
NYS Psychoanalytic License Qualifying Program
The JPA invites applications for training from individuals who possess a graduate degree, Master’s level or higher, from a registered degree-granting program in New York State or another program recognized by New York State. Applications from individuals with a Master’s degree in mental health as well as other disciplines are considered.
All candidates who are admitted to the JPA are also enrolled in the IAAP Certifying Program. We do not accept candidates who simply want to attain the NYS license; they must also want to pursue the Jungian analytic certification. Both programs are designed to be taken concurrently and most of the course work overlaps.
The JPA requires 50 hours of psychoanalysis with an IAAP certified Jungian Analyst prior to beginning training. These hours may be counted toward the 300 hours of Jungian analysis required for graduation from the JPA program. However, regardless of previous analytic hours, AITs must be in Jungian analysis during their entire training with the JPA.
The JPA prefers, but does not require prior experience in the mental health field, preferably supervised experience as a psychotherapist.
The next JPA NYS License Qualifying Program cohort will be admitted in the Fall of 2024. During 2023 please contact the Director of Training, Tiffany Houck, M.Div., Ph.D., L.P. for additional information regarding this program at [email protected]. Application dates and deadlines are listed below.
To apply for training with the JPA, first please contact the Director of Training to schedule a preliminary interview. She can be reached at: [email protected]. The preliminary interview will establish if the applicant is qualified and whether an application would be appropriate. If so, the applicant will fill out the application form and return it to the coordinator.
The coordinator then convenes a panel of three JPA analysts who meet individually with the applicant. Upon recommendation by the panel that the applicant be considered for admission, the applicant is invited to participate during a weekend colloquium meeting. This offers the opportunity to experience our learning community in action. The panel makes the final decision about acceptance following this weekend.
If the Admissions panel decides it is advisable, it may require an applicant to complete additional preparation and/or submit additional materials prior to admission to the training program.
Individuals who have already completed part of another psychoanalytic Institute’s License -Qualifying Program and who wish to apply to the JPA-LQP will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Courses completed in the previous LQP program would be transferable.
The JPA administers its admissions policy without regard to race, religion, national origin, marital status, age, sex, or sexual orientation, as well as without regard to a person’s disability as designated by applicable law.
If you wish to apply for admission to the JPA License Qualifying Program for the Fall of 2024, the deadlines are as follows:
- By March 1st: Complete a preliminary interview with the Admissions Coordinator, Submit an application form, a curriculum vitae, graduate degree transcripts, and $150 application fee, Complete 3 interviews with individual members of the Admissions Group
- Attendance at the admissions colloquium and 2-person panel final interview completed
- Applicants will be notified as to their admission to the program on or around May 1st 2024.
The JPA will hold a Virtual Open House regarding its Training Programs date and time TBA. ( Zoom link will be posted on the website/events & conferences section.)
- Assessment is seen as an ongoing dialogue between the AIT and his/her advisors, faculty members, and supervisor. It focuses on professional competence, mastery of the theory and clinical practices of psychoanalysis, including diagnosis and treatment as outlined in the curriculum, as well as the development of the capacity to work symbolically. It takes place within three basic venues: immediate “point-of-contact” between AIT and faculty including a minimum of one meeting per trimester with an AITs primary advisor, written evaluations at the completion of each course, and the assessment of clinical competence expressed in the Clinical Thesis written in the final year of the program.
- The completion of 405 clock-hours of course work.
- The completion of a minimum of 350 clock-hours of Jungian psychoanalysis with a NYS licensed psychoanalyst (and IAAP certified analyst).
- The completion of 198 clock-hours of clinical supervision with a New York State licensed or exempt JPA member Jungian analyst, of which 58 clock-hours are Control supervision of one case. To complete the supervision requirement, AITs are typically in private supervision once per week over four years and in addition, in Control supervision for two of those four years.
- The completion of 300 clock-hours of supervised face-to face clinical experience with analysands in an approved setting.
- The completion of the Child Abuse Prevention course established by the State of New York.
- Successful completion of Clinical Thesis Paper.
- Following your JPA Graduation, you will need to apply for NYS Licensure to practice privately. For further information please visit: http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/mhp/mhp-permits-faq.htm
Included in tuition is membership to The Kristine Mann Library, located in the C. G. Jung Center at 28 East 39th Street, NYC 10016.
“Focused on the work of Carl Gustav Jung, the Kristine Mann Library is well known as an important and accessible resource for Jungian studies. The Library, established in the 1940′s by the Analytical Psychology Club of New York, collects and catalogs books, papers, journals, audiovisuals and other materials by and about C.G. Jung and others in the field of Jungian psychology. The KML collection also includes materials in related areas of study, such as Eastern and Western religions, alchemy, mythology, symbolism, the arts, anthropology, psychoanalysis and general psychology.” (quoted from the KML website)
Faculty members may also make their professional libraries available for the training of analysts as an additional resource.
In addition, we encourage our candidates to become members of the New York Public Library, whose vast–free– on-line collection of psychology and psychoanalytic books and journals includes anything they would need for their studies and research.
Our License Qualifying Program is designed to be fulfilled in five years.
The first year courses are specifically designed to introduce the candidate to the overall theory and clinical practice of psychoanalysis, and specifically Jung’s theories. There is a three-trimester course (Jungian Theory and Clinical Process) which serves as a thorough overview of the field, as well as classes on the DSM-IV and basic history of psychoanalysis. The first year is designed to prepare the candidate for clinical work, including discussion of ethics and scope of practice.
The second through fifth years continue in the study of theory and practice and include case seminars. Candidates begin to see a few analysands in the JPA New York State approved setting.
In addition to the trimester course schedule and weekend dream practicums, there are three weekend-long colloquiums that are required attendance of all candidates. The fall and spring colloquia will be our only in-person events held each year in Rhinebeck, NY. The winter Colloquium will be held virtually.
