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 from diverse psychoanalytic organisations 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.
This issue is dedicated to the memory of Kirsty Hall who died in May 2015, with papers from her friends and colleagues – Dany Nobus, Paul Verhaeghe, Werner Prall, Haya Oakley, Val Parks, Anne-Lise Stern. Reviews from Barbara Cawdron, Robert Weiss and Nic Bayley.
Improvisation is an art form based on listening, being in the present, and building a narrative, usually with one partner. The stage is most often empty, except for a few chairs. All you have to work with are your body and feelings, your intelligence and your experience. Sound familiar?
How did the past produce psychoanalysis? How do psychoanalytic institutions co-produce the present? How will psychoanalysts help to construct the future?
