The Professional Doctorate in Intercultural Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy programme consists of substantial taught and research components (50% each), and requires supervised clinical practice of two patients (one for 18 months and one for 24). The candidate needs to be in personal analysis with a clinician member and/or approved by the RTC of at least twice a week for one year prior to seeing patients.
Students learn the application of theory to innovative clinical practice; acquire the skills, knowledge and experience to practice as independent Intercultural Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists after full qualification and registration with the RTC.
This exciting and innovative programme is aimed at clinicians and senior professionals working within health and social care settings. The programme has been developed as a partnership between Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and the Refugee Therapy Centre (RTC). Completion of the course will lead to a QMUL degree, and registration with the RTC as a fully qualified Intercultural therapist. RTC is an organisation member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA).
A relevant first degree or equivalent, although candidates without a formal academic background but with adequate relevant experience may be considered for a QMUL MSc programme as an alternative, and on successful completion of that, can continue with the Professional Doctorate. All applicants will be asked to complete a timed essay on the day of their interview as part of the assessment of their academic ability.At least one year of work-experience with relevant client groups, and be currently engaged in such work.
