Summary

This programme, run in conjunction with, and based in the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, provides a unique foundation for individuals interested in pursuing a psychotherapy training or an academic career in childhood development. The programme combines psychoanalytic theory of development and inter-family relationships with a year-long observation of infants in a family setting, and a research project.

Students develop a theoretical grounding in psychoanalysis as related to child development and clinical practice. Observations of parents and children allow students to witness some of these theoretical constructs in real world contexts and help students develop the observational skills essential in clinical work. The research teaching covers qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and gives students the tools necessary for conducting reliable, valid and ethical research.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) is also offered on a full-time basis.

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MSc in Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology. Upon successful completion of 120 credits, you will be awarded a PG Dip in Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology.
