I’ve been accepted by the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts for training!
The admissions process is so wild. Masters/Phd requirement, mental health license, and 100 hours of personal analysis with a board certified Jungian Analyst before APPLYING.
(These days if you throw a rock in Austin, you’ll hit a therapist. But there’s only one practicing Jungian Analyst in Austin to my knowledge. I am currently at session 125 with my analyst from Santa Fe and have been in personal analysis since May, 2020.)
Training is its own beast— a 4 to 7 year program consisting of a bunch of details including a mid program, 5 hour analytic interview followed by a few years of working on a dissertation. Oh, and the way you know you’re done? A dream will tell you.
This has been so hard to write out because I can’t fully express how excited that I am. 🥰🌀😬🧙♂️😎
