Jungianthology Podcast Posts

Boris Matthews, PhD, LCSW, NCPsyA, the Director of Training at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago, interviews two Jungian Psychoanalysts and recent graduates of our Analyst Training Program (ATP), Adina Davidson, PhD, and Dan Ross, RN, PMHNP, MSN, MBA, about why they chose to commit to Jungian work and how it has change their practices.

The Analyst Training Program prepares experienced, licensed clinicians to become certified as Jungian psychoanalysts through an in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of analytical psychology grounded in personal analysis and clinical consultation.

The Process of Analytic Training is both educational and transformational, and frequently leads to significant personal development and psychological deepening. The program fosters mutual development and psychological awareness within an intimate learning community of candidates and analysts. Upon graduation, candidates have an appreciation of the symbolic attitude within the interactive field of analysis and a working understanding of transference dynamics within the analytic relationship.

The Curriculum is organized thematically around the reading of Jung’s seminal writings as well as subsequent developments in analytical psychology and psychoanalysis. Courses in theory and practice are likewise organized around major themes that include the structure and complexity of the psyche, the mythic patterns of archetypal potentials and dynamics, the capacity to work with the symbolic meaning of dreams, and a practical grasp of the mutual transformation of analyst and client within the interactive transferential field of analysis.  Case seminars, case colloquia, dream practica, and group process ground the thematic and course materials in personal and clinical experience. The curriculum extends over a four-year course of study taught on nine three-day weekends each year.

The Program is designed to make analytic training available to all qualified applicants. The one-weekend-a-month structure allows training to fit into one’s professional life, whether or not you live in the Chicago area. Our location in “the loop” has convenient access to public transportation, both O’Hare and Midway airports, and Union Metra/Amtrak train station. We have discount rates at Club Quarters Hotel and tuition assistance is available to those in financial need. All classes and events are accessible.

Certification of the C.G. Jung Institute to train analysts is granted by The International Association of Analytical Psychology. The Institute is accredited as a psychoanalytic training institute by the The American Board for Accreditation in Psychoanalysis, Inc.

Applications to the Analyst Training Program are currently being accepted for the 2020-2021 training year. The deadline to apply is January 15th, 2020. To learn more about the program, the institute, and to download an application, visit our website.

Thomas Moore will be visiting us in October to lead a two-day seminar (registration is open now). As an introduction to Moore’s perspective and voice, we are sharing the first hour of his previous workshop with us, Cultivating Soul, which included two parts:

Part 1: Ageless Soul
Thomas Moore will speak about the themes of his book, Ageless Soul, and engage in conversation with attendees and analysts. Ageless soul offers positive and inspiring guidance for becoming a full person as time goes by. Since we are all aging, it is for anyone who has ever thought about getting older. It’s especially valuable for people 50 and over. It seems more difficult than ever these days to deal creatively with aging. This book provides a deep and comprehensive plan that sees aging not as losing capacity but as becoming who you are destined to be, a real human being. It covers key matters, such as:

 – the shock of discovering that you’re getting older
  – how to keep your youth in a deep way
  – how to manage your sexuality as you age
  – how spirituality can mature and become more important over time
  – how to value your life by leaving a conscious legacy for your family and your society
  – responding well to loneliness and depression
  – nurturing friendships and community as you get older

Part 2: Care of the Soul in Troubled Times
For all of our problems, our times are in many ways better than the past. Throughout history, much has been achieved creatively in very troubled times. This is a time to resist the culture (contemptus mundi) and live your own life of excellence and beauty. It’s a time to assume leadership for change and returning to eternal values. Study the best of lives in our past and be inspired toward creativity and excellence (aréte).

This seminar was recorded on October 28, 2017.

Thomas Moore, PhD is the author of nearly two dozen books on deepening spirituality and cultivating soul in every aspect of life. His book, Care of the Soul, was a #1 New York Times bestseller. Well-known within the Jungian community, he has been a monk, a musician, a university professor, and a psychotherapist. He lectures frequently in Ireland and has a special love of Irish culture. He has a PhD in religion from Syracuse University and has won several awards for his work, including an honorary doctorate from Lesley University and the Humanitarian Award from Einstein Medical School of Yeshiva University. Three of his books have won the prestigious Books for a Better Life awards. He writes fiction and music and often works with his wife, artist and yoga instructor, Hari Kirin. Much of his recent work has focused on the world of medicine, speaking to nurses and doctors about the soul and spirit of medical practice. thomasmooresoul.com
