Analytical psychology has its roots in the work of Carl Gustav Jung. Dr. Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, explored the archetypal, cultural, and personal factors that color human thought and emotion. His research and writings address the individual, personal relationships, as well as the larger cultural context.
There is a robust contemporary interest in furthering the practice and development of analytical theory. Analytical psychology provides a comprehensive method for understanding the relationship between conscious and unconscious experience, and is a widely respected healing practice taught to psychotherapists all over the world.
