Professional Development Seminars in Analytical Psychology

September 2008 - May 2009


The Pacific Northwest Society of Jungian Analysts is offering a series of seminars on the work of Carl Jung to mental health professionals with a clinical degree or practice experience. It will benefit those who wish to deepen their understanding of the theoretical principles underlying the practice of Jungian psychology.


The seminars are part of a two year course of study. Each year will consist of nine seminars meeting once a month. Each session addresses a core topic in Jung’s understanding of the human psyche.

The emphasis will be on reading and class discussion, and may include experiential exercises. Each seminar will be taught by a trained and certified Jungian Analyst.

In September 2008, we are starting the second year of the seminars. Enrollment is limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis with preference given to prior participants. Those who are continuing their enrollment from the first year will receive their registration materials by email. Those who did not participate in the first year but wish to enroll in the second year are welcome to apply, provided that they have some familiarity with Jung's ideas and principles.

If you would like to participate in the second year of the seminars, please contact Dunbar Carpenter at 503-220-0992.
