The Philadelphia Association of Jungian Analysts & the Philadelphia Jung Institute host Public Programs which are designed for clinicians, but are open to all who are eager to explore and be enriched by the ideas of Carl Jung and analytical psychology for their personal and professional development. No prior knowledge of Jungian thought is required. Our events offer the opportunity to hear from presenters on the leading edge of depth psychology, nationally and internationally. Most are published and have made significant contributions to the field. This format includes audience dialogue to enhance its relevance to individual interests.
PAJA supports diversity, pledges equity and fosters inclusivity. We encourage students of any race, color, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity and national or ethnic origin to participate in our programs.
When Continuing Education credit is available it will be noted with the program description.
