The application process will place special emphasis on the life experience and personal qualities of the applicant, his or her academic and professional achievements, and the applicant’s demonstration of an aptitude for understanding basic Jungian theory.

When candidates are accepted into Stage I, they are assigned to a Training Committee, which will guide and evaluate them throughout the rest of the program.
