Public Continuing Education Programs and our Training Programs are open to clinicians who are seeking greater knowledge about Analytical Psychology and its applicability to clinical practice. Continuing Education credits are available for licensed clinicians.
The Public Program Series presents lectures on five Friday afternoons from 1:00 to 4:00 (October thru February) in which a Jungian analyst or scholar makes use of insights from Analytical Psychology to address an identified psychological problem facing our contemporary world. Lectures often include film clips and mythic amplifications to deepen the experience of participants.

These workshops are equally suitable for clinicians seeking to refresh their knowledge of Jung's work, as well as non-clinicians who use Jung's ideas in their professional endeavors or personal lives. All are welcome! Classes include Jung 101, Ethics 101, Supervision 101, and Dreams 101.
