About The Israel Institute for Jungian Psychology
The Israel Institute for Jungian Psychology was founded in 2000, with the aim of encouraging a deeper understanding of analytical psychology and and to continue to develop the theory and practice of analytical psychology as propounded by CG Jung and Erich Neumann.
The institute also founded and continues to develop an analytic training programme for mental health professionals guided by the principles of analytical psychology. Since its foundation the institute has seen the successful formation of over 6 groups of analysts. As such, it is instrumental in developing and maintaining a standard for those wishing to undertake a post-graduate programme for clinical excellence in Jungian analysis.
Furthermore the institute provides its members with a community with which to exchange ideas in, providing groups for discussion and forums for further professional development. In order to encourage the expansion and innovation in the theory and practice of analytic psychology, the institute cooperates with other organisations and societies.
The organisation also provides a range of activities, some to the general public, allowing for further development of awareness and development through clinical case discussion, lectures, seminars and more.
