Learn the core concepts of C.G. Jung's psychological theory

If you're interested in gaining a deeper understanding of classical Jungian psychology, then look no further!

Jung's writings often challenge his readers in many ways. This course will guide you step-by-step through the core principles, methods, and terms of Jung’s psychology. What distinguishes Jung’s psychology from other depth psychologies is Jung’s assertion that the deep unconscious of every human being is structured in a similar way. These deep structures steward psychological energy through both the conscious and unconscious aspects of personality. Through the eight modules of this course Dr. James Newell will introduce you to the essentials of Jungian thought in a way that will make his ideas accessible and easy to understand.

Jung 101 gave me a deeper understanding of Jung’s theory

Monica Flores, Ed.D

Jung 101: Introduction to Jungian Psychology gave me a deeper understanding of the history of Jung’s theory and of the Jungian perspective. From Jung’s early influences to learning how Jung himself was developing a unique way of understanding Self, man/woman, and their symbols, I gained an understanding of a number of Jungian terms and concepts.

Ann Amberg, MCS, Transpersonal Leadership Consultant

I highly recommend Dr. James Newell’s courses. Upon completion of my certificate in Depth Psychology I had gained the confidence, focus and knowledge to support my success in my current PhD program in Jungian and Archetypal Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute. James is a knowledgeable and caring instructor with an engaging teaching style. All of the Depth Psychology Alliance courses I took: Introduction to Jungian Psychology, Active Imagination, Fairy Tales, Dreams, and many more, were phenomenal and I am most grateful for the opportunity to study with James.

The courses I have taken with Dr. Newell have perfectly prepped me for my graduate studies in psychoanalysis

Nirlap Bettenhauser, student

This is an outstanding educational program where one can learn multiple areas of Jungian Psychology. These courses are very well structured with an appropriate course load and high quality texts. Plus the price is incredibly reasonable. The courses I have taken with Dr. Newell have been intellectually engaging and have perfectly prepped me for my graduate studies in psychoanalysis. Not something I expected to receive from the academy, but very grateful I did.
