About Our Program

The Integrative Depth Psychology Institute is the inspired manifestation of a long held dream of President and Clinical psychologist William James Jones, PhD. For many years Dr. Jones dreamed of developing an institute specifically designed to provide an enriched learning environment for curious students, graduates, and licensed mental health professionals looking to sharpen clinicals skills through the study, practice, and application of integrative depth psychology. Founded in 2020, our Institute is located in Pasadena, CA and reflects the diverse backgrounds and cultures of the area. We’re extremely proud of our students, clients, and staff, who are always eager to learn, create and grow together. Give us a call to find out more about how we can help you prepare for the future.

Progressive Theory

What is Integrative Depth Psychology and Psychotherapy?

The Integrative Depth Psychology Institute was founded by Dr. William James Jones (IDPI President) to pursue the potential, practicality, and promise of Integrative Depth Psychology and Psychotherapy. Integrative Depth Psychology and Psychotherapy bestows deference to the depth of one’s psyche while tending to the soul of human authenticity and self-actualization. This  treatment and psychological approach is based on four theoretical and value-based pillars which fuse together 1) multicultural competence and awareness, 2) humanistic perspectives and relational counseling techniques, 3) intersubjective psychoanalytic approaches, and 4)  and integrating short-term and long-term treatment processes through a Jungian conceptualization lens and framework. 

Let us provide you with the training, theory, and clinical practice necessary to sharpen your vocational experience and craftsmanship.
