Study Group in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy & Jungian Analytical Psychology from a Contemporary Relational Perspective
Led by: Dr Paola Valerio
Metanoia Institute is offering this seminar series for experienced and qualified UKCP registered psychotherapists (or equivalent), who want to enhance their original qualification and learning by integrating a psychodynamic, relational and Jungian focus into their practice.
The principal aim of the seminars is to provide an introduction to Jungian and Psychoanalytic ideas and to offer an experiential and supervisory context in which to apply the learning to current practice.
The teaching module will run bi-monthly on Saturdays for a full day (9.30—5.30pm), numbering eight days in total. Key psychoanalytic and Jungian concepts will be discussed from a contemporary perspective and explored in relation to how they might inform the practitioner's clinical practice.
The course will consist of a mixture of clinical and group seminars, based on contemporary psychoanalytic and Jungian thought. There will also be an experiential group and group supervision as part of the structure.
The Diploma year is entitled “Clinical Perspectives and Application” and continues our focuses on an in-depth exploration of working within an analytic relational frame, in a variety of different contexts and intensities, with depressed narcissistic, borderline and abused or traumatized clients. We will focus on integrating theory and practice; on working with the relationship, significantly using Jungian concepts of the wounded healer and countertransference with clients who may evoke hateful and erotic or perverse reactions in us for example. Techniques will be explored and we will have opportunities to bring our work to sessions including a session on dream interpretation. We will maintain a focus on efficacy and outcome and contemporary debates in psychoanalysis and analytic psychology.
