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.
The SITE is teaming up with the Freud Museum for its annual conference in 2017:
11th & 12th March 2017 at the Freud Museum
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.
‘What is it that I think I am doing when I am doing Psychoanalysis.’
Chris Oakley has been a Psychoanalyst, supervisor and teacher for over 45 years. He is a founder member of the Site,before that he was involved with the PA from his early 20s. He has been heavily involved in the training of students for many years and has much to say on this and other issues relating to analytic work. In the course of this conversation we will be attempting to ask the question what it is that Chris thinks he is doing when he is doing psychoanalysis.
