The Training in Analytical Psychotherapy at the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy was founded in 1990. It aims to provide an experience of learning from which its graduates will qualify as competent and responsible practitioners of Analytical Psychotherapy. In support of this aim, the Training Committee supports and encourages the ongoing development of a lively, open-minded and well-informed culture of Analytical Psychotherapy in the Midlands through the provision of an annual series of public lectures.
The Analytical Psychotherapy Training currently offers three training options:
This Training recognizes that good practice in Analytical Psychotherapy is rooted not only in a sound understanding of the theory and practice of the profession, but also in the authenticity and creativity of the practitioner's self-knowledge and participation in analytic process. The training aims to encourage the development of personal authority in the trainees that will enable them to navigate a diversity of approaches to analytical psychotherapy.
In this aim, we remain true to Jung's philosophy regarding the ongoing development of autonomous individuals who belong to a culture, not to an orthodoxy of analytical theory and practice. Whilst the teaching programme is grounded in the theories of C.G. Jung and their development by post-Jungians, it also draws widely on psychoanalytic and object relations theory. All subjects or theories are taught by specialists in their own field; together they represent the diversity and richness of analytic experience.
Our lectures are open to the public as well as our students and graduates. If you would like to receive details of future events by email please sign up here >>
