Jungian Analysts, also referred to as Analytical Psychologists, have been members of the BAP since it began in 1951.
The original BAP members wanted to build on the discoveries of both Dr Sigmund Freud, a neurologist, and of Dr Carl Jung, a psychiatrist and his close collaborator in the early years of the 20th century. Gradually, however, their perceptions and diverging interests asserted a difference in emphasis which led to two distinct traditions and disciplines: "Freudian" psychoanalysis and "Jungian" analytical psychology. Therapeutic and theoretical developments have continued in parallel, affording a choice of therapies and trainings within one institution, unique to the BAP.
BAP Jungian Analysts
Jungian analysts in the BAP play an active role in the life of the Association, and like all BAP members, are registrants of the British Psychoanalytic Council, BPC. Additionally, their section is recognised worldwide as an accredited Jungian society and training institute. As such, BAP Jungians are members of the International Association of Analytical Psychology, IAAP, in which they have held prominent posts including President.
