PPC@SIP / PPC2 2018 Course Applications

ppcsip 3


‘Into the Clinical’

PPC 2 has been developed for clinicians who want to build on the foundation of PPC@SIP to further extend their clinical work.    

This Course will go more deeply into the clinical encounter with more opportunities for clinicians to present their clinical work and actively engage with the readings.

In addition to its focus on work with the patient, PPC 2 also introduces a frame for clinicians to think about the psychodynamics of the workplace and the impact of these dynamics on patients and professionals in mental health settings.

The syllabus will be based on Patrick Casement’s book ‘On Learning from the Patient’, as well as papers by Hinshelwood, Menzies-Lyeth (et al). Access to a library with a PEPWEB subscription for one year is also provided.

It is anticipated that participants will have had or
will currently be engaged in personal psychodynamic therapy to enrich their experiential understanding of the Course.

PPC 2 will provide support to suitable applicants with its Scholarship program and Australian Psychoanalytic Foundation Bursaries.
Applicants will be interviewed to discuss their interest and readiness to engage with the aims of the Course, and due to limited availability of places interested clinicians are invited to submit a completed Application form as soon as possible. Forms are available at: sydneypsychoanalysis.asn.au/downloads-2/ppcsip.html

Annual fees are $3000 (+ GST) and enquiries can be directed to Liz Kerr, Pam Shein, Leonie Sullivan, Karyn Todes or Mark Howard at: ppc-at-sip@iinet.net.au


2017 Course Applications open until October 30, 2016*

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.

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.
