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.
