With a growing number of members, an active programme of lectures, clinical seminars and Study Days, as well as many opportunities to contribute to the teaching and running of the organisation, SIP offers a dynamic and rich experience to its members and associates.
We welcome applications for membership from psychotherapists who have completed a training in psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapy equivalent to SIP’s own training. Members of other Membership Institutes of BPC can also join SIP as a Clinical Associate, allowing them to receive referrals via SIP’s Consultation & Referral Service (CRS), attend SIP’s CPD events, participate in the delivery of SIP’s training, subscribe to various journals and publications at a discounted rate, and join SIP’s Committees.
