supports the spread of the ideas of Carl Gustav Jung and his followers in the countries that are interested in it, and Ukraine is one of such countries. The development of analytical psychology in Ukraine took place in several stages. IAAP
is International Association of Analytical Psychology which is the main and unifying organization for all the analysts around the world. IAAP
is the umbrella organization for all Jungian societies around the world which supports high standards of education and provides the compliance with the ethical norms and develops the interests towards analytical psychology.
The initial stage relates to the becoming and the acceptance of Kyiv Development Group (KDG of IAAP) by IAAP in 2004 as the official group supported by IAAP with the purpose of the creation of the professional analytical society in Ukraine. The members of the group were citizens of different countries such as Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Moldova.
Later the group was named Ukrainian Development Group, UDG.
The second development stage was marked by the availability of the Router program in Ukraine. The Router status is given to the participants of the international analytical training of IAAP in the country which doesn't have its own professional training society.
The first group recruitment took place in 2008, and the last Router recruitment took place in 2016. The following meaningful development stage of analytical psychology was the appearance of certified analysts in Ukraine, the Individual Members of IAAP (IM of IAAP).The first analyst was Dmytro Zalessky in 2010, as he had received and completed the Russian Router training of IAAP in Moscow.
After that three analysts finished their training in Kyiv and were certified in 2013: Inna Kyryliuk, Elizaveta Molostova and Konstantin Slepak.
Six more analysts finished their education and were certified in 2016: Iuliia Sharipova (Kobzieva), Olga Sikorskaya, Tatyana Pervouchina, Sergii Tekliuk, Mark Kriukov, Yuri Danko.After this the last but one stage of support of IAAP in Ukraine became accessible – the creation of the professional society without the training status.
In 2017, six analysts, after finishing their training in Ukraine, took upon themselves the commitment and the responsibility to unite and register the professional society in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Jungian Association (UJA).
