Markers for bpf Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Training 

Hiring multiple candidates. 

We are looking for markers to mark the final clinical paper for our bpf psychodynamic psychotherapy training.  The final clinical paper plays an important part in the Training Committee’s assessment of a trainee’s readiness to qualify, but it is not in itself the gateway to qualification.  Guidelines for writing and marking the paper are provided, including those for content structure and referencing.

The paper is read by two readers appointed by the chair of the Training Committee who will then then share their notes between themselves and meet to discuss and agree their overall assessment of the paper. The readers jointly write a report about the paper and their experience of the discussion. This report should indicate whether or not the readers are satisfied with the paper and its discussion.

You can either take on one paper or multiple papers.

Payment will be £60 per paper.

You will need to be a bpf member and either a registered psychodynamic, psychotherapist, psychoanalytic psychotherapist or Jungian analyst. We encourage applications from senior members and members who are newly qualified.

We will offer moderation opportunities for all markers.

If you would like to apply, please register your interest with [email protected] and we will be in touch to discuss this with you further.  The deadline is 11:59pm on the 28th June 2024.
