This unique course offers an introduction to fundamental concepts in psychoanalysis to those new to psychoanalysis and it will also appeal to those seeking a refresher in the various themes. The 6-week course is designed to be accessible in its content, clinical applicability, and also its cost. Participants are encouraged to enroll in all six seminars, although it is possible to enroll for an individual seminar. Each weekly seminar is taught by dynamic tutors who are also highly experienced psychoanalytic practitioners. The seminars will consist of an interactive combination of lectures and facilitated discussion. Readings will be
available in advance for each seminar and will provide a basis for analysis and discussion of the weekly themes. The seminars will take place by Zoom and tutors will use a range of audio- visual aids. Seminar descriptions and full tutor bios are below.
