Integrating Psychoanalytic Thinking into Psychology

Module 1 – Introduction to Psychoanalytic Thinking

Overview


The Integrating Psychoanalytic Thinking into Psychology course is an online CPD programme, running over three terms, to deepen the theoretical understanding and practice of psychoanalysis/psychoanalytic psychotherapy, as relevant to clinical and counselling psychology.

This CPD course explores central aspects of the analytic situation, comparing different approaches, especially within the relational school. Participants will be able to critically evaluate multiple conceptualizations of the unconscious, transference, the self and the object, mechanisms of change, and their clinical implications.

Throughout the course, students will be invited to reflect on how to integrate psychoanalytic ideas into their psychological work, exploring approaches to assessment and formulation, treatment planning, and common therapeutic dilemmas.

This programme is taught with reference to the Centre for Outcomes Research Effectiveness (A British Psychological Society partnership) competence frameworks for the delivery of effective psychological interventions.

Module 1 introduces key psychoanalytic concepts, with a focus on relational theory.

The Integrating Psychoanalytic Thinking into Psychology course is a facilitated, self-study, online programme that includes both live and pre-recorded lectures. The group is managed by a facilitation team, who are available to answer questions and provide guidance.
