These professional doctorates are made up of two parts: a clinical training component followed by a research component. The clinical training component consists of psychotherapy training that has led to registration with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) or the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA) of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
The research component, normally three years of part-time study, offers a structured method of continuing professional development aimed at enhancing your research skills and contributing to the development of the field. It consists of methodology seminars, research workshops and writing, under supervision, a 40,000-word thesis.
The combination of the clinical and research components leads to a Doctorate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy or Analytical Psychology.
There are also opportunities to study for an entirely research-based PhD (three years full-time, six years part-time).
The D58 is offered by the Tavistock Clinic in London and validated by CPS. It is a part-time course that offers an opportunity if you are a health service, statutory service or voluntary service worker wishing to gain a substantial introduction to psychodynamic psychotherapy.
This course will be relevant to those working in the mental health field or those with an interest in psychoanalysis. It gives a thorough grounding in psychoanalytic theory through which to explore its application both to the clinical setting and to culture and society. The course is offered one year full-time, two years part-time or modular (up to five years).
This course takes an informative, critical and reflective stance in relation to the key texts of Jung, the diverse contexts from which analytical psychology emerged, and the core concepts developed by Jung, post-Jungians and scholars. The course is offered one year full-time or two years part-time.
