A Discussion Series for Those Interested in Advanced Training (Five weekly seminars)
With Stanley Ruszczynski, Katherine Astill, Dr Avi Shmueli, Alison Bruce & Andrew Balfour

This series of five weekly online seminars offers an opportunity for psychoanalytically oriented therapists working with individuals, children, adolescents or groups to learn more about couple psychoanalytic psychotherapy as developed and practised at Tavistock Relationships over 75 years as well as for couple therapists to develop their theoretical understanding.

Seminars will be led by experienced couple psychoanalytic psychotherapists, and will offer a mix of theory and clinical vignettes. There will be the opportunity for discussion in the group, and to develop connections with colleagues working in the field. Places are limited, to allow space for participants to develop their own thinking, and to bring their clinical experiences and their own engagement with the theory.

The programme will give consideration to key couple psychoanalytic concepts, as well as to clinical technique. It will cover periods in the life cycle that can bring couples into therapy, including parenthood, and challenges such as ageing and illness which can powerfully rekindle the earliest anxieties.

The series will act as a taster for Tavistock Relationships’ Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy clinical qualification, which is being developed so that it can be offered from September 2024 as a hybrid course; online and in person. Each 20 minute talk will be recorded and you will have access to the recording for 365 days after the event, the discussion will not be recorded.
