Nancy Krieger is a training and supervising analyst and currently Director of Program at ISAPZurich. She was in the first graduating class from ISAP. She has a PhD from the University of Essex, Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies. Her thesis investigates how the brain, functioning as a physical dynamic system, generates consciousness, using Jung’s theory of complexes as a model. A slightly shortened version was published by Routledge with the title Bridges to Consciousness: Complexes and Complexity.
She is fascinated by how closely Jung’s theories, formulated over a century ago, mirror current research findings in neurology and consciousness studies.
Her original background is in computing and communications systems. She lectures, teaches, and supervises internationally, principally between Zurich and the far East. She lives in France.
