Psychotherapy Tips

Research and training centre for depth psychology

The programme is designed for academics from all fields.  The basis of the training is the personal analysis and hence the connection of analyst and analysand to the manifestations of the objective psyche. On the basis of the dreams and creative work, the board decides whether the candidate shall be accepted for training. The candidate’s own analyst continues to play a key role.

Candidates for studying at the centre are encouraged to apply. Between autumn 2020 and autumn 2021, the Board paused with reading applications and inviting candidates for studying at our Centre, due to the corona sitation. As the spring block course has taken place as hybrid course with some candidates particpating in person, the Board has taken up the application procedure, again.

Training
Twice a year, two-week block courses are held, with lectures and seminars in English and German. The period between the  two courses is intended for individual study and for analysis.
The teaching staff are members of the Board, experienced analysts invited as guest lecturers, and academics from other fields, as well as graduates and students at the Centre.

Diploma
The first part of the theoretical section of the course closes with the Propädeutikum, which entitles the  student to take on practical case work under  the supervision of an  experienced analyst. The second part concludes with a thesis and a Diploma examination.  With the Diploma, the Centre testifies to the ability to take on professional work as an analyst, but does nor guarantee the opportunity to  work professionally in Switzerland or any other country.

Publications from the Centre can be found among other places, in the two publications series of Jungiana,  and  the publishing house Living Human Heritage.

 

The Research and Training Centre in Depth Psychology was founded in Zurich in 1994. The idea was to set up a place in which the objective /autonomous psyche could be observed in all its aspects.

Aims
The aims of the Centre are, on the one hand, to conduct in-depth research into the unconscious psyche and also to provide a training programme for
analysts. The Centre is open to interested parties from all academic spheres who are considering applying their own experience of the unconscious and depth psychology in their own special fields.

Special emphasis
is placed on research, which is an integral component of the programme. The starting point is the pioneer work carried out by C.G. Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz. A major aspect of the study programme is the understanding of archetypal processes and how they find expression in all cultures and in all manifestations of the unconscious of modern man. Special emphasis is placed on research into alchemy. Subjects that arise from this are the connections between individuation and collective renewal and between psyche and matter.
