Post-Qualification Certificate/Diploma in Psychoanalytic & Jungian Studies
The Post Qualification Certificate is made up of 8 training days, spaced over a year in monthly units. Each unit consists of a mixture of clinical and group seminars, based on contemporary Psychoanalytic and Jungian analytic thought. There will also be an experiential group and group supervision group as a part of the day. This is a pre-requisite for the Diploma course.
The Certificate Year is entitled “Making the Transition” and provides an opportunity for candidates to discuss, explore and critique some of the major theoretical differences between a humanistic or integrative frame and an analytic one. Key Psychoanalytic and Jungian concepts will be discussed and explored in relation to how they might inform the practitioner’s clinical practice. We will review approaches to assessment for analytic psychotherapy and also brief dynamic treatment options. This initial year seeks to convey theory, research and practice issues addressed by psychodynamic work, with an emphasis on understanding the shift in Psychoanalytic thinking from classical models towards more contemporary relational models of theory and practice.
The Post qualification Diploma is made up of a further 8 training days, again spaced over an entire year and arranged in a similar format to above. There is an additional requirement at the end of the Diploma year of one 3000 word essay in which you write about how you have integrated your learning into practice.
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.
