The full training in Analytical Psychology offered by G.A.P. comprises the Certificate course in Jungian Studies, a three year course covering all the core theory of Analytical Psychology, completion of which is a requirement for entry into the Diploma in Analytical Psychology course, which is the clinical component of the training.  This training is open to individuals who meet the professional requirements of G.A.P.  Satisfactory completion of the training leads to candidates becoming fully certified Jungian Analysts and includes membership of the UKCP, IAAP and G.A.P.

The programme is directed to the psychological development of individuals who are familiar with the concepts of C G Jung, and who have the capacity to use and develop them in accordance with their own understanding of analytical psychology.

An on-going analysis with a frequency of twice a week is a basic requirement for the duration of the training. Theoretical preparation and a working knowledge of empirical concepts of analytical psychology are essential.

The Certificate course involves seminars and discussions at which students are expected to prepare presentations. Assessment of the first part of the training is by continuous review, oral and written, to establish the depth of the student's knowledge and understanding. Progress is monitored in conjunction with a Review Committee and tutors.

On the Diploma course students take on clients, attend regular supervision and clinical seminars, and this provides practical experience and application of theoretical knowledge. 

Seminars are held in various locations in London on Wednesday evenings weekly during term time from 5.00pm to 6.30pm.  There are also 6 Saturday workshops each year.
