Organised by:

British Psychoanalytical Society (incorporating the Institute of Psychoanalysis)

10 May 2021 - 21 June 2021

Time: 19:30 - 20:45

Price: £50 for full series

Location: online


This five part course is aimed at nurses and allied healthcare professionals working within a mental health setting. It follows on from the course offered by the Institute of Psychoanalysis in autumn 2020 but does not require attendance of the first course.

The course offers an in-depth way of understanding the work with psychiatric patients with the aim of making interactions with patients and in staff teams more therapeutic.

In live webinars, a synthesis of theoretical teaching and discussion of clinical examples is offered, in a dialogue with nurses and contributions from the audience. Different aspects of mental health work, the relationships with patients as well as institutional and staff dynamics, will be addressed from a psychodynamic perspective. This should facilitate reflection on the work in psychiatry and improve clinical care.

Speaker: Marcus Evans, Psychoanalyst, Mental Health Nurse
Nurses in dialogue: Siobhan Bryant, Senior Nurse Practitioner and Joan Osimuwa, Ex-Ward Manager and Practice Experience Manager
Chair: Wilhelm Skogstad, Psychoanalyst, Psychiatrist
