Jung Pride is the name I choose for a new permanent space in my blog to reflect on what defines the identity of the Jungian analysts, their clinical practice, their social and political responsibility, their vision of the world.
In general the term Jungian Analyst or Analytical Psychologist defines the psychologists or medical doctors trained as depth analysts in one of the Jungian training schools that belong to the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP). They are professionals able not only to treat the psychic suffering and disorders through a psychodynamic approach to the conscious and the unconscious mind, but also to recognize and to integrate the creative and transformative aspects of the psyche, towards the realization of personality as a whole, thanks to some characteristic tools such as the method of active imagination.
The name of Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) is sometimes associated to a negative prejudice, that often comes from a poor knowledge of his theory and practice and from a misunderstanding of some popular analytical notions such as, for example, "the archetype" or "the collective unconscious". Still more misleading is the New Age twisting of Jung's analytical psychology.
