    Programme Description

    The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

    The Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies was founded with a particular philosophy: that psychoanalysis is rich in its sources and affiliations, yet is at root a clinical discipline. The Centre's research was submitted with the Department of Sociology, which was ranked first in the UK, for the last RAE.

    The Centre brings together the academic and non-factional interest in psychoanalytic theory, which universities have traditionally fostered, and the clinical experience of practitioners, wich is the basis of psychoanalytic knowledges. Staff are practitioners as well as scholars and the Centre has strong links with other departments at the University, as well as with the National Health Service and with clinical training organisations.

    Research supervision is offered in: psychoanalytic theory; group and institutional dynamics; psychosis; gender; child development; philosophical issues in psychoanalysis; trauma and violence; conceptual analysis; creativity; refugee studies; psychoanalytic methodology in clinical and non-clinical fields; history of psychoanalysis; psychoanalysis and the arts; psychoanalysis and religion; psychoanalysis and education.
