FOUNDATION COURSE in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

This course is offered by apptraining, the training section of AGIP. It is a one year course offered over 10 Saturdays, one per month between October 2019 and July 2020. It is a stand-alone first year of a four year training as a psychoanalytical psychotherapist or Jungian analyst and is aimed at: those who are sure they wish to train; those who are wondering if a training in psychoanalysis is for them; those working in allied fields who believe that an understanding of psychoanalytical ideas would be of value to them (which could also represent fulfuilling their professional CPD requirement); and those working in the arts and theatre who wish to consider the links between the arts and psychoanalysis.

Candidates must be at least 23 years old and have some experience of working with people in a helping capacity. All students are required to be in once a week analysis with an AGIP approved therapist for the duration of the course.

Students with an attendance records of 80% (or better) may opt for a Certificate of Attendance or they choose to submit a written assignment for the full Certificate (those wishing to apply for the subsequent three clinical training are required to submit the assignment).

In addition to the Saturday seminars there is also an Induction session in mid-September. Full details of the course structure, content and other details are advised to visit our web site.
