The BPC opposes any discrimination of any kind.

This includes, but is not limited to, any discrimination on the basis of age, race, gender, ethnic origin, religious belief or sexual orientation. Selection of candidates for training is to be made only on the basis of qualities directly concerned with the ability to learn and to function as a psychotherapist.

It is expected that this same standard will be used in the appointment and promotion of members of educational faculties, including training and supervising therapists.

We have compiled bibliographies on sexual orientations and race, racism and ethnicity, they can assist further a psychoanalytic understanding of diversity and they can be found below.
