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.
Papers from our 2013 conference on Trauma from Val Parks, Jane Haynes, Dorothée Bonnigal-Katz, Barry Watt, Robert Weiss, Brid Greally and Philip Hill. Reviews from Nic Bayley and Alan Pope.
We will be exploring the issue of self- harm and looking at why psychoanalysis is vital as both a response and as a treatment.We will be asking questions like: is there an upside to self-harm? How does society regulate our forms enjoyment? Why does psychoanalysis seldom or not at all venture into the area where action is required, leaving the field open to CBT? If it were to venture into these areas what might a psychoanalytic ‘theory of action’ look like?
To mark the launch of its new series of clinical workshops, The Site will be hosting a special evening of conversation with Adam Phillips on the theme: Talking About Clinical Work on Wednesday September 28, 2016 at 7.30pm.
This workshop will explore the reasons couples come to therapy and how to avoid coming between couples whilst working with that which is between them, the couple’s dynamic.
