Welcome to The Site

The SITE for Contemporary Psychoanalysis is a training organisation and a member of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College (CPJA)  of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). All graduates are eligible for UKCP registration.

The Site was established in October 1997 by psychotherapists who wished to create a training programme and an association that would foster critical, reflective and imaginative thinking about psychoanalysis and its contemporary practices.

In 2010 the Site set up a sister training in Truro, Cornwall.  This is now a well established part of the Site, with a successful training, an Introductory course and annual public events.

Cornwall Workshop: In the Aftermath of a Suicide

The enigma of suicide creates a devastating rupture in the lives of those who had a relationship with the person who has died.  The ‘afterwardsness’ of the fall-out for therapists when there is a suicide in their clinic is myriad. How do we speak in a place of the enigmatic?  Is there a place to speak in the private and public spaces of our lives?

Cornwall Workshop: Working with Dreams

How can we decide what meaning a dream should be ascribed? What ideas can we lean on to guide our understanding and handling of dreams? Do we try to interpret them, or do we leave the patient room to make their own associations? The clinical setting is a space where dreams can be explored, and this workshop will focus on the place of dreams within that encounter.
