The aim of Psychoanalytical Training is to develop psychoanalytic competence and a core psychoanalytic identity. A psychoanalytic identity requires intellectual and emotional openness towards understanding the complexity of the human mind including its suffering. Essential to this identity are an attitude of scientific curiosity, a spirit of openness towards new observations, and a wish to acquire a comprehensive understanding of the accumulated body of psychoanalytic knowledge. A psychoanalytic identity also includes a lasting commitment to continuing study and development as an analyst, including regular consultation with colleagues. The analyst’s identity and work depend upon developing and maintaining high standards of clinical competence, high ethical standards and a commitment to patient care. This course is part-time and is organised, as far as possible, so that students are able to continue working during the training. Details are available on the Program page:
