This part-time course aims to provide a basic general introduction to the thinking behind psychoanalytic and Jungian psychotherapy. It may be used as a first step towards a British Psychotherapy Foundation (bpf) professional training but is equally relevant to anyone curious about these ideas, their origins and their development.
The curriculum explores the rationale for psychoanalytic concepts and how and why they work in clinical practice. Key concepts are introduced and opened up for discussion, alongside a broad view of the field of psychological therapies and mental health. Students are encouraged to take a critical approach to the papers studied and to be open to enquiry.
The seminars are taught by practising therapists and analysts and take place alongside a weekly experiential group the purpose of which is to stimulate reflection on both the self and the dynamics between people.
To help students make the most of the course, support is provided by an individual tutor throughout the year. The tutor is also available to guide those interested in further study or progress towards training as a psychotherapist.
30 seminars over three terms from October 2015 – July 2016, held on Wednesday evenings 7pm – 10pm at Kentish Town, London, NW5
