Developing a psychoanalytic approach to working with children and adolescents

Training Location: London. Part-time course.

This course offers the opportunity for those currently engaged in direct work with children or young people to discuss aspects of that work in a weekly seminar led by a senior child psychotherapist. The aim of the course is to develop and enhance psychoanalytic understanding of the emotional growth and behaviour of children and adolescents and to consider its application in current work.

Currently accepting applications for January 2024 start.

The course is facilitated by senior Child Psychotherapists who are Members of the bpf and ACP.

Group members’ experience in their own settings will form the basis of discussion and related to relevant theoretical concepts. As a work discussion seminar it is expected that the participants bring detailed presentations of their work which are then thought about using a psychoanalytic framework.
