JUNGIAN ANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY WITH ADULTS
The Jungian Analytic Training was established in 1963. The International Association of Analytic Psychology (IAAP) approved the Jungian Section of the BAP for Full Membership of the IAAP in 1982, and, upon qualifying, its members may therefore call themselves Jungian Analysts. The Training is part-time and includes a two-year Infant Observation (which may be undertaken before commencing or concurrently with the first two years of Training). The course, comprising Theoretical and Clinical Seminars, Infant Observation and Clinical work with patients, under the supervision of BAP-approved Supervisors, lasts a minimum of four years (usually about five years). Successful applicants are normally expected to have a degree, preferably in medicine, psychology, social sciences or an allied subject, but applicants without a degree, but with suitable working experience in a core profession will be considered. All successful applicants must have been in personal therapy for a minimum of three times a week for at least six months before applying, and must remain in therapy (minimum three times a week) throughout the duration of Training. For an informal discussion about clinical training, please contact Linda Darrell on 020 8949 7420.
PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY WITH ADULTS

PSYCHODYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING
The training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with adults is a new training, established in 2010. It is based on our highly regarded psychotherapy training, and is designed to meet the needs of practitioners wishing to offer less intensive psychotherapy in the public and voluntary sector, the NHS and private practice. The Training, which is part-time (taught on one evening a week), lasts a minimum of 3 years and comprises a comprehensive programme of Theoretical and Clinical Seminars, a one year Infant Observation, and clinical work with patients under the supervision of BAP approved Supervisors. Applicants are usually expected to hold a degree and to have relevant work experience, but suitably experienced applicants without a degree will be considered. Personal psychotherapy is a core requirement which is central to personal and professional development as a psychotherapist. Before commencing Training, successful applicants will be expected to have been in personal therapy for at least one year, not less than twice weekly, with a Training Therapist approved by the BAP, and will be required to continue in at least twice weekly personal therapy throughout the duration of the Training. For further details please contact Jessica Jarmon at firstname.lastname@example.org
THE WESSEX REGION TRAINING IN PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY WITH ADULTS
This is a new development that draws upon the BAP’s long experience of training. Just like the London-based psychoanalytic psychotherapy training, the Wessex Regional Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy offers a comprehensive theoretical and clinical training lasting on average four to six years (part-time). The requirements and standards of the London Training are replicated in the Wessex Training. The administrative base for the training is Oxford but aspects of the course will be taught in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. We will be pleased to arrange an informal preliminary interview for people who are considering applying and who wish to know more about the new training. For further information please contact Jill Harbridge-Hui on 0118 9476365 or email email@example.com
DOCTORATE OF PSYCHOTHERAPY IN CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY (DPSYCHOTHERAPY)
(jointly run with Birkbeck College, University of London)
THE CLINICAL TRAINING in psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents was founded in 1982. In September 2008 the training became a joint clinical doctorate programme between Birkbeck College (University of London) and the BAP.
THE PROGRAMME will enable trainees to acquire a professional training in child and adolescent psychotherapy and to complete a doctoral-level research project. The training is for a minimum of four years which leads, upon qualification, to Membership of the Child and Adolescent Section of the BAP and accreditation by the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP) for work in the National Health Service.
The theoretical orientation of the training represents the thinking of the Independent School within the British Psychoanalytic movement and also provides thinking from the classical Freudian and Kleinian movement, as well as contemporary thought. It allows trainees flexibility and scope to find in time their own theoretical position. For trainees who are in a Jungian Analysis there are additional Jungian Theory Modules. The training is offered in a small-group setting and aims to provide a thorough understanding of normal child development, childhood psychopathology and psychotherapeutic techniques linked with direct experience of clinical work.
Each trainee sees three children in intensive psychotherapy (one child of 5 years or under, one primary school child, and one adolescent), a minimum of three times per week, with individual weekly supervision for each case. Trainees are also required to treat at least six children once or twice a week, to work with parents, and to undertake diagnostic assessments. Trainees work within the NHS, many of them in fully funded posts.
Research methods classes focus on a range of relevant methodologies, including different qualitative approaches. The substantial doctoral thesis is in an area of choice relevant to child and adolescent psychotherapy, and is supervised on an individual basis by members of the Birkbeck School of Psychosocial Studies.
All trainees are required to be in personal psychoanalysis or Jungian analysis with a BAP approved therapist, at least four times per week throughout their training.
APPLICATIONS Applicants are required to have a relevant Honours degree, followed by an appropriate postgraduate course, such as either the MSC or Diploma module of the BAP/Birkbeck MSc or an equivalent pre-clinical course recognised by the ACP (such as the Anna Freud Centre/UCL’s MSc course). Applicants who do not have an Honours degree but have a relevant degree or equivalent, must complete a recognized MSc programme.
Additional requirements are: substantial experience of working with children of two different age groups (e.g. under-5s adolescents); personal suitability and aptitude for psychotherapeutic work with children; having completed, by the commencement of training, at least one year in intensive (3-4 times/week) psychotherapy with a BAP approved training therapist.
The doctorate with Birkbeck College is under review. For the 2013/14 intake, trainees with a funded post will commence their clinical training in September 2013. It is expected that at a later stage in training trainees will be selected for readiness to commence research work.
