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.
