The Psychology Club Zurich

Updated: Sep 9, 2021

Yesterday I visited the Psychology Club Zürich set up in 1916 by Carl Jung after his acrimonious falling out with Sigmund Freud, both of whom developed their own clinical methods for treating emotional problems or mental distress through dialogue between a patient and psychoanalyst - therapist. It was the beginning of Jungian Analytical Psychology and Freudian Psychoanalysis. To this day, the two schools of thought have never reconciled. The difference goes as far as how the patient and analyst face each other in an analytic/therapy session; in a Freudian analysis you lie on a couch facing away from the analyst, and sit facing each other in a Jungian analysis. I was in awe as I walked around the building taking in the amazing history of Jungian psychology.
