The IAJS has established the first international annual awards program in the history of Jungian and post-Jungian studies. Its aim is to recognize the best of academic scholarship, analytic and psychotherapeutic practice, and outstanding contributions to the analytical psychology community worldwide without political partisanship.
C.G. Jung Award
The Jung Award will honor recipients who have made significant international contributions in scholarship, leadership, service, mentorship, clinical praxis, renovation, and/or lifetime achievement in analytical psychology and/or post-Jungian studies. The recipient will receive an award plaque and all expenses paid to deliver the C.G. Jung Keynote Address at our IAJS sponsored international conferences.
The first recipient is Andrew Samuels who will be awarded this honor for lifetime achievement at our 2020 conference held in Pittsburgh, PA at Duquesne University.
