Summary

This programme in psychodynamics provides an understanding of human development through the theoretical and clinical issues raised by infant observation, through work study seminars and through psychoanalytic and Jungian analytic theories. This includes recent research in child development and contemporary issues in psychodynamic or Jungian analytic theory.

This course is designed to provide professional and personal development for those working in settings such as community care, counselling, social services, primary care, mental health and education. It is a foundation, including accredited infant observation, for those considering psychotherapy training and it fulfils the entry requirements for a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Doctorate.

Psychodynamics of Human Development is taught jointly by Birkbeck and the British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF). The first year is taught at the BPF, based in Kilburn (north-west London).

Highlights
