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.
Chris Oakley and Ed Thornton will unpack some of the central arguments of ‘Anti-Oedipus’, by Deleuze and Guattari. They will explore the reasons behind the controversy and ask whether this provocative text has any clinical implications for practicing psychoanalysts today.
A series of three interconnected workshops, facilitated by Philip Hill. This introductory series will explore how a Freudian or Lacanian approach differs from others, and will review different and popular clinical techniques and theories in widespread use today, including those of Jung and Klein, and their clinical consequences.
In this lecture, Mary Wild will deconstruct and interpret this unforgettable cinematic riddle from a psychoanalytic perspective, the central thesis being that a psychogenic fugue follows the unconscious trauma of unrequited love in the context of the Hollywood film industry.
