B8 OVERSEAS, NON-PRACTISING AND RETIRED MEMBERSHIP
An analyst who has decided to live and practise wholly in another country should inform the chair of the professional committee of their intention. Overseas members are bound by the rules and regulations of the Association and its Code of Ethics & Practice. The fee for an overseas member is a percentage of the current AJA membership fee as set by Council, not including IAAP or other membership fees.
Members are reminded that if they wish to take time out, they should do so responsibly and ethically, and consider seeking help and/or advice from a mentor, when they close their practice and if they wish to reopen it. To become a non-practising member the analyst should write to the chair of the professional committee stating reasons for wishing to take time out from the practice of analytical psychology. The chair will then arrange an interview to discuss the matter with the analyst, including the choice of a possible mentor.
Reasons for taking time out can be manifold and the responsibility of AJA is to help facilitate this process. The analyst should propose a structure for the process and present this to the professional committee for approval.
The fee for a non-practising member is a percentage of the current AJA membership fee as set by Council, not including IAAP or other membership fees.
An analyst who has decided to retire from the practice of analytical psychology should inform the chair of the professional committee of their intention, and also provide the termination date (see also B9).
Retiring members are encouraged to continue to take part in the life of AJA and the retired membership fee is a percentage of the current AJA Membership fee as set by Council.
