Dr. David Walczyk is an experienced psychotherapist and Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City. His office is at 41 Park Avenue. For seven years he has specialized in working therapeutically with creative individuals, and 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 mindfulness. His interest as a designer is the convergence of the pre-modern with the modern in the emergence, production, and maintenance of new and existing modes of subjectivity, existential territories, universes of reference and the moral and ethical systems that correspond to and conflict with them.
David completed his doctoral degree at Columbia University and 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 (General Electric Global Research), award-winning educator (New York University – NYU), writer and public speaker. Access to his design portfolio and CV is available upon request. During the spring of 2017, David 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.
