Modified Entry Scheme: Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Adults (British Psychotherapy Foundation)

British Psychotherapy Foundation

The Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Association of the British Psychotherapy Foundation offers a Modified Entry Scheme: training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Adults

The aim of this scheme is to enable qualified child psychotherapists (ACP), couples psychotherapists (BSCPC), and adult psychotherapists who are not registered with the BPC to train as adult psychoanalytic psychotherapists.

Successful completion of the scheme leads to membership of the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Association (PPA) of the British Psychotherapy Foundation, and to registration with the BPC in work with adults.

Applicants will have had two years’ clinical experience as a psychotherapist since their original qualification and will have undergone an intensive personal psychotherapy, equivalent to that required for the BPF PPA Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (minimum 3 x week, throughout the training, with an approved Training therapist). If not, they will be required to have further personal psychotherapy with a Training therapist approved by the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Association (PPA).  Applicants who have not already completed a recognised Infant Observation Course will be required to do so. Applicants would normally be expected to have gained some psychiatric experience during their previous work or training or be required to undertake this during the scheme.
