A Warm Welcome to the Journal of Analytical Psychology


We would like to offer you a warm welcome to our world wide Jungian Journal. The JAP is the leading international Jungian publication, renowned for its emphasis on the clinical practice of in-depth analysis and its exploration of the relationship between analytical psychology and psychoanalysis. It also addresses issues on the leading edge of philosophy, science, religion, and an understanding of the arts.

Clinical and theoretical articles, book and journal reviews, reflect international developments and current controversies in analytical psychology and Jungian thinking. Journal articles demonstrate the continuing development, relevance and vitality of Jungian thought.

Over the next few years we particularly want to reach out to our colleagues in South America, Australasia and Asia and will be holding conferences and colloquia there, as well as publishing special editions of the Journal.

Please follow our blog (at the bottom of this page) and check in on the videos made by our authors introducing their papers. Download the new JoAP app and follow us on:
