Trainees will usually complete the three-term SAP Foundations Course before they begin the clinical training. The psychotherapy training is made up of 8 modules (not including the Foundations Course) and usually takes three years.
This training is informed by Jungian and Post-Jungian theory and practice and there is an emphasis on contemporary themes and ideas that are relevant to the provision of analytically informed treatments in a variety of clinical settings. The course also draws on recent research into clinical methods and development in related disciplines such as child development, attachment theory and neuroscience.
