Since my graduate program doesn't offer any Jungian courses regularly, I'm getting ready to draft a proposal for an independent study course that focuses specifically on Jung.  There's a couple of faculty members that have an interest in Jung that may agree to be the overseer and mentor for me on this.  I figured if I came up with a proposed course of study that it would only help my chances of getting one to agree, but I'm having a very hard time narrowing down what the proposed readings for the course should be (there's just so many possibilities and so much I'm interested in).  I'd appreciate any suggestions on the readings I should propose to be done in the course.

Thanks in advance for any input.

  • Hi Sara, I found I was in a similar situation when I chose to deconstruct Analytical Psychology for an advanced theories course.  I read through original works, in addition to Jung primers (there are many of these), David Miller's work (fortunately he is emeritus at my university, so I met with him as well), and some contemporary articles found in the Jungian journals.  Currently, I'm reading Boundaries of the Soul: The Practice of Jung's Psychology by June Singer.  This book I'm reading to help my clinical practice with clients and am finding it to be an interesting read for clinicians who aren't super well-versed in Jung's work.
