Dr. David Walczyk is an experienced psychotherapist and Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City. For over twenty years he has worked at the intersection of design and consciousness. In his clinical practice, he integrates Jungian analytical psychology with neuroscience and the psychology of desire. His creative interest is the convergence of the archaic with the modern in the emergence, production, and maintenance of new and existing modes of subjectivity and new universes of reference and how design, wellness, and spirituality can and do influence and inform them.
David completed his doctoral work in communication and education at Columbia University and completed his therapist training at the C.G. Jung Institute of New York. Previously, he was a public policy fellow at the United States National Academies of Sciences and a visiting scholar at the United States Library of Congress, both in Washington D.C. and a co-founder of the Cultural Informatics Studio Lab at Pratt Institute. He is a co-author of the evaluation criteria for the Buckminster Fuller Challenge which was named “socially responsible design’s highest award” and the founder of the Buckminster Fuller Institute’s Fellows Program for Socially Responsible Designers. He is an award-winning designer (GE Global Research), award-winning educator (NYU), writer and public speaker. Access to his design portfolio and CV is available upon request. During the spring of 2017, he will be teaching a course on the neuroscience of spirituality at the C.G. Jung Foundation of New York and a course on the Political Economy of New Media at NYU.
