We assume that there is a relation between the setting and the psychological theory used by the analyst. Freudian analysts have always tried to underline the continuity of the setting with the ideas of its founder. The introduction of the relational paradigm brings elements of discontinuity regarding to the classical Freudian setting and imposes a reflection on the setting and its possible variations. We try to propose a definition of a particular Jungian setting based on the psychological theory developed by Jung. We underline furthermore convergences and differences of the Jungian setting in comparison with the setting as proposed by relational psychoanalysis.
