Episode 6: Mark Winborn

Dr. Mark Winborn next to the square stone that Jung carved at Bollingen.

While in Chicago for the 2015 Fall Conference of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts {IRSJA}, Dr. Mark Winborn took time out of his busy schedule to sit down with me to speak about something I've been dying to clear up: what exactly is a Jungian analyst?

Dr. Winborn earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Memphis in 1987, and a Diploma in Analytical Psychology {the degree of a Jungian analyst} from the IRSJA Training Program in 1999.

He's currently on the executive committee of the American Board for Accreditation in Psychoanalysis as well as chair of their distance learning committee and committee on accreditation. He's affiliated with the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis and the International Association for Analytical Psychology. He is a training/supervising analyst of the IRSJA and is the Training Coordinator for the Memphis-Atlanta Jungian Seminar.

Dr. Winborn is a visiting faculty member at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zürich, The Houston Jung Center, The Jung Seminar of Texas, the C.G. Jung Institute of Philadelphia, the C.G. Jung Institute of Pittsburgh, The New Orleans Jung Seminar, The Florida Jungian Seminar, and the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago.

He is the author of the book, Deep Blues: Human Soundscapes for the Archetypal Journey, published in 2011, and the editor of Shared Realities: Participation Mystique and Beyond, published in 2014. Dr. Winborn has maintained a private practice in Memphis, Tennessee since 1990.
