Association of Medical Psychodynamic Psychotherapists
The AMPP is a member institution of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) within its psychodynamic psychotherapy section. It was established in 2012 by the BPC in recognition of the special skills and knowledge that psychiatrists as medical practitioners bring to psychotherapy and in particular psychoanalytic ways of working. The aim is to provide accreditation, registration and professional support and development to psychiatrists who, as part of their medical training have achieved the required standards of a BPC psychodynamic psychotherapist.
There has been a steady stream of applications from psychiatrists around the United Kingdom since the inception of the AMPP and the BPC are now exploring opportunities to establish it as a component of an established independent member institution, and develop a vibrant post-qualification organisation to promote CPD and other profession development.
Members include psychiatrists who have completed specialist training with the Royal College of Psychiatrists (or equivalent) and whose psychodynamic psychotherapy training has mainly been conducted by experienced BPC registrants from the psychoanalytic psychotherapy section.
As the AMPP currently is directly administered by the BPC, please contact the BPC office for any further information.
