PPC @ SIP
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Course at Sydney Institute for Psychoanalysis
2017 Course and Scholarship Applications accepted until mid-October.*
The next PPC@SIP Course will commence in February 2017.
The Course syllabus is based on Alessandra Lemma’s introductory book about psychodynamic psychotherapy. This text provides a good foundation for clinical discussions to develop observation and listening skills that are helpful for all mental health professionals, as well as professionals engaged in organisational change and mediation.
The Course suits newcomers to psychodynamic thinking as well as more experienced clinicians, and PPC is suitable as a stand alone professional development module, as a foundation for the SIP Small Group Seminar program, or to explore an interest in more intensive training programs at SIP and other organisations.
Scholarship & Bursary Program
SIP provides support to eligible students in a Scholarship program that covers Course fees, and some Bursaries may also be available through the Australian Psychoanalytic Foundation. During the Course, mentorship from SIP Members is also available to help participants consider their further professional development.
SIP welcomes applications from students and clinicians working with disadvantaged
patients in ‘not-for-profit’ organisations or public mental health services where psychodynamic thinking could be applied.
Applications will be assessed on their merits and suitable applicants will be offered an interview with a panel who will consider the applicant’s written personal statement, professional interests and aspirations, and capacity to benefit from the Course.
Up to four Scholarships may be awarded. The Ron Brookes Scholarship is awarded to a clinician working with children and adolescents, and one scholarship will be awarded to a student clinician.
During the Course, mentorship from SIP Members is also available to help participants consider their further professional development.
The Course provides access to a library and a PEPWEB subscription for one year.
Where possible, it is recommended that participants have some personal experience of psychodynamic therapy to gain a practical understanding of the Course material..
