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 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.
In this 6-part lecture series, a selection of films portraying psychiatric diagnoses will be explored, with information provided on the emergence and development of distinct clinical categories featuring anxiety, depression, psychosis, amnesia, addiction and sociopathy. In addition to in-depth content analysis of visual material, there will be a platform to discuss the role of moving image culture in shaping public perception and social attitudes in relation to psychological distress.
How did the past produce psychoanalysis? How do psychoanalytic institutions co-produce the present? How will psychoanalysts help to construct the future?
