To celebrate the 40th Anniversary year of its foundation, the Association of Jungian Analysts is organising a conference in London with the programme devised in conjunction with all the London Jungian training societies.
London is unique in having five societies with IAAP accredited trainings and this conference is the first to bring all five societies together.
During the conference analysts from each of the five societies will share their personal interpretations of the conference theme – “Who is my Jung?“.
The conference with open with an address from Arthur Niesser, the Chair of AJA. Dr Niesser will then introduce the keynote speaker.
The rest of the day will be formed of three panels each of which will address one theme arising from clinical work. There will be time for specific questions during each panel and an opportunity to bring together the themes in the final plenary.
