The C. G. Jung Study Center of Southern California is a vibrant and diverse community dedicated to the study of Jungian Analytical Psychology. We offer a post-graduate analyst training program that prepares students for a professional practice as a certified Jungian Analyst and membership in the world-wide community of Jungian Analysts. We welcome applications for analytic training from licensed Mental Health Professionals and Interns: including Clinical Psychologists, LCSW's, MFT's, Research Psychoanalysts, MD's, and nurses. Candidates develop both their theoretical understanding and practical clinical skills through an innovative yet traditional Jungian curriculum that focuses on each person's unique relationship to the living psyche.

The Study Center begins Training Seminars in September. We accept applications for Training any time up to June 1 of the Training Year.
