The BPA Clinical Discussion Group (CDG) enables participants who may be interested in training as a Psychoanalyst (or similar trainings) to begin to think, or to develop their thinking further in a psychoanalytic way.

The CDG provides an opportunity for participants to discuss and to think together about their professional relationships and work - whether clinical work or work in any type of workplace or institution - from a psychoanalytic viewpoint, and the application of psychoanalytic understanding.

To apply for these courses please complete the attached application form and email to Joyce Samuel-Ouadjo, Training Co-ordinator at or phone 020 8452 9823 for further information.
