Scholarships allow support for a wide range of candidates who otherwise could not afford training.
Jungian training is an extended process. Over an average of six years, individuals from many countries develop their depth of understanding through the study of theory and its application to themselves and their clinical work with patients.
During training, over half of all candidates depend upon some combination of support from their own work, and from family, community, scholarship, or loans. Each year, conditions change drastically for some international candidates. For example, they must now care for an ailing parent, partner/spouse, war erupts, or economic disruptions occur. Over the course of study, often times changes in foreign exchange rates increase expected training costs.
Scholarships have a positive domino effect on the training candidate and his or her home practice area. For example, with numbers of torture victims, refugees, and immigrants are increasing. Jungian therapists can help these individuals process their difficult trauma and try to find meaning and trust in life again.
With a lower burden of debt, new analysts can serve people in varied economic settings in their home countries—often with previously underserved or new populations who require lower fees. The model of making analysis affordable for the populations that graduates serve begins with and is inspired by scholarships.
