WCAJA is a professional association of accredited Jungian Analysts, also known as Jungian Psychoanalysts, residing in Western Canada: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. We are a non-training group member of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP). Analytical Psychology refers to the concepts, theories and psychodynamic practices developed by Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961). The field of Analytical Psychology continues to expand and evolve through post-Jungian research and publication about theory and practice.
There are today many “Jungian-oriented” approaches to therapy. However, Jungian analysis as put forward by Jung himself is practiced only by accredited Jungian analysts who are graduates of an IAAP recognized training institute. For more information and a list of accredited analysts, go to https://iaap.org/group-members-societies/
Jungian analysis is the therapeutic process of encountering, re-membering and living from the depth both within oneself and the world.
All WCAJA members are certified graduates of an Analytical Psychology education and training program that is approved by the IAAP. Only those persons who have membership in IAAP may practice under the title of Jungian Analyst or Jungian Psychoanalyst.
