Welcome Martha, (since you are in the South, is it Martha Ann?)
Glad you found and decided to join the Alliance. I'll be interested to hear whether your counseling masters degree even mentions Jung and depth psychology. Seems counseling psychology has been dominated recently by cognitive-behavioral and pharmacology recently. Curious to hear your views as you go along. There is also a Jung in the South group you might join as they offer information about depth psychologically focused events.
Now to the official welcome...
As you may know, we currently have over 2050 members from all over the world and we're growing. I hope as you explore the community a bit you find a dynamic group of like-minded people who are all deeply drawn by the field of depth psychology. While there are many Jungian analysts and clinical psychologists here, our members come from various walks of life including artists, writers, doctors, scientists, healing professionals, counselors, students, business people, etc--so there is much cross-disciplinary knowledge and experience here to be shared. On that note, please take a moment and introduce yourself in the Forum and let the community know what brings you here or what your background is. Also, there are many opportunities to engage as you browse the site. When you're ready to jump in, please feel free to post a topic for discussion in the forum, respond to someone else's post, or share a link to an article or web site you like. The January online book club featuring "The War of the Gods in Addiction" with David E. Schoen has just ended, but you can still read the archived comments and listen to the four weekly archived teleconferences with David if you want--or browse the written discussions from past months as well. We'll have more Book Club groups in coming months. Otherwise, we've just launched an ongoing special study group on the Red Book with Robert Bosnak which you can join anytime if you wish.
