Course Description

Postgraduate Diploma MA in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Successful completion of this course confers Professional Membership (psychoanalytic psychotherapy) of The Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling, the professional body of WPF Therapy graduates. These members of FPC are eligible for registration as as psychoanalytic psychotherapists with BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council). Course description * Seminars There are three years of seminars on psychoanalytic theory and clinical concepts which take place on Thursday afternoons, 1.00pm - 4.30pm. These cover the essential ideas of Freud, Jung, Klein, object relations theory and contemporary critiques. Students are encouraged to think for themselves and relate ideas to clinical practice. The course seeks to raise questions about issues in theory and technique so that trainees can begin working towards a personal approach on working psychoanalytically. * Clinical Work Students are required to see two training cases three times per week one person for two years and one person for eighteen months. Depending on your geographical location we hope to find training patients for you through WPF Therapy's own Clinical Service. * Infant Observation Trainees observe a mother and baby from the baby's birth up to a year and bring their observations to a seminar to learn about development and the processes and dynamics of being an observer. * Psychiatric Placement Trainees are required to spend six months in a psychiatric ward, attending ward rounds and observing the work of the staff in any way possible. It is not a working placement but an observational one. * Assessment Trainees are asked to complete five assessments in the WPF Therapy Clinical Service under supervision. Assessment is a vital part of any psychotherapist's work and we aim to help trainees to learn to think through the options and possibilities for each person they assess.
