The Clinical Associate membership category of SIP allows adult-trained psychoanalytic psychotherapists who are registered with BPC through a different member institute (MI), or adult-trained psychoanalytic psychotherapists who are registered with UKCP (or similar) but have long standing links to the profession in general, to participate in several of SIP’s activities. It is not, and must never be intended to convey, a qualification or full membership with SIP, and must never be alluded to in such a way as to mislead others about this.
Clinical Associates will receive information about our CPD events, study days, and the annual public lecture, as well as gain access to PEP-Web. They will be invited to General Meetings of the membership and may, in certain circumstances, be co-opted onto an SIP committee or invited to give seminars to training candidates, though will not have voting rights at AGMs or EGMs and may not chair a committee unless they apply for full SIP membership through the direct entry scheme.
Clinical Associate membership of SIP currently costs £86.00 p.a., plus £39.00 p.a. for PEP-Web registration (NB: the latter is not payable if you are already registered for PEP as specified in the PEP section at the bottom of this form).
The SIP membership year runs from 1st of September to the 31st of August. The fee payable for the first year of membership is calculated on a pro rata basis to the 1st of the nearest month of acceptance of an application.
