Course of studies
The programme is designed for academics from all fields. The basis of the training is the personal analysis and hence the connection of analyst and analysand to the manifestations of the objective psyche. On the basis of the dreams and creative work, the board decides whether the candidate shall be accepted for training. The candidate’s own analyst continues to play a key role.
Pausing in inviting candidates: at the moment (since autumn 2020) we are pausing with reading applications and inviting candidates for studying at our Centre, due to the corona sitation. This is as long as the personal live contact is not possible, which we require as essential before accepting a candidate.
Twice a year, two-week block courses are held, with lectures and seminars in English and German. The period between the two courses is intended for individual study and for analysis.
The teaching staff are members of the Board, experienced analysts invited as guest lecturers, and academics from other fields, as well as graduates and students at the Centre.
The first part of the theoretical section of the course closes with the Propädeutikum, which entitles the student to take on practical case work under the supervision of an experienced analyst. The second part concludes with a thesis and a Diploma examination. With the Diploma, the Centre testifies to the ability to take on professional work as an analyst, but does nor guarantee the opportunity to work professionally in Switzerland or any other country.
