APP Membership

Following our September AGM, 2013, there is now one type of membership of the APP open to all independent of training or experience.  We would like to encourage all to join who have an interest in psychoanalytic practice and psychoanalytically informed work. We would see this as open to the whole family of psychoanalytically / psychodynamically informed psychotherapies and thus those trained and training in these modalities. 



Membership is open to all grades of practioners with an interest in the NHS and other public services and includes:

  •  Anybody who is actively engaged in practising, teaching or learning a psychoanalytic / psychodynamic psychotherapy.    
  • Anybody who is interested in the application of psychodynamic principles in their own field and support the objects* of  the APP.
  • Anybody who is working in the newer psychodynamically informed psychotherapies, for example DIT, MBT, PIT.

  (*The objects for which the Association is established are for the advancement of the practice of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and its applications in the Public Health Sector, to support research and education in the field)
