The mission of the Institute is to advance Analytical Psychology – the theoretical foundation of Jungian psychoanalysis – as a practice that speaks to the basic human need for psychological growth and consciousness. The objectives of the Institute are to train psychotherapists to become Jungian Psychoanalysts as well as to educate mental health professionals in the principles of Analytical Psychology. The Institute also maintains a collegial society that provides continuing education and ethical review for member analysts as well as supports scholarly research and publication among its members to advance Jungian psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Finally, the Institute offers educational programs in Jungian thought for the general public.
