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:
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.
A medical colleague, who had experienced suicide in the family, referred to its impact as being ‘like a hand-grenade going off’, ie: the damage can be wide-ranging, unpredictable and devastating
In this workshop we will be trying to re-define and re-claim the role of the supervisor’s responsibility back to the discipline of psychoanalysis and in doing so making ample opportunity to engage in the artful and expressive practice of giving an account.
Sometimes truth trumps accuracy. Reality, facts, lies – what is the truth, and whose truth is it? Elie Wiesel said, “some stories are true that never happened, and some words remain true even if their meaning evolves”.
