At the beginning of the twentieth century, the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung created from his clinical studies a typology of personas, which he published in 1921 in his book Psychological types (translated from German). He identified eight universal functional modes and he travelled across the world to validate their universality – no matter where you were born or which culture you belong to, these eight functions do exist in every single individual.
Our mission is to promote an interdisciplinary dialogue and foster a better understanding of C.G. Jung’s theories and ideas to a twenty first century audience made up of both specialists and laypersons alike. All center-sponsored activities address issues and questions of singular importance to contemporary culture.
The Center for Complex Psychology is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to providing community outreach and education to people interested in the body of thought derived from the work of C.G. Jung. In the spirit of promoting and advancing Jung’s ideas, we coordinate monthly to quarterly programs and workshops by both local and nationally known speakers and publish a quarterly newsletter. All of this provided either free or for a small fee.

"I would like to recommend CPP to everyone interested in learning more about themselves and how their life fits into the larger social picture. CPP and Jung’s theories helped me better grasp my own place in the world and how I can make a difference."

"CPP provides a forum for all kinds of different people to come together and talk about that one thing that connects us together, ideas! CPP provides venues that engage the heart and mind in a way that shows the connections out there. The programs are intended for both a specialist and layperson audience alike."
Billy, Sacramento, CA
"When I first started attending programs and classes and CPP, I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing for me, but I stuck with it and gradually realized that it was what I was looking for all along and it gave me a sense of purpose."
Julie, San Francisco, CA
"CPP is an interdisciplinary forum and program that delves into the relationship between the individual and the greater social world. It starts with the theories of C. G. Jung and other depth psychology theorists and explains in a way that the average person can understand."
