Building on your Stage Two training, this final year focuses on extending your knowledge and skills to support Psychotherapeutic change. You will develop the techniques and clinical understanding you need to work at a deeper level, helping people to make positive change, and you will reflect upon and consolidate your identity as a TA psychotherapist.
At the end of the year, you will have completed your formal TA training and be eligible to continue towards your CTA exam and qualification as a UKCP registered psychotherapist.
I couldn't wait to start this year with Lisa and Patrick. I knew it would consolidate my previous learning and also give me a more contemporary perspective on TA.
What does Stage 3 cover?
Over eleven weekends, the course covers subjects such as:
- The mental health system in the UK and working with diagnostic manuals
- Deconfusion of the Child ego state
- Working intersubjectively in the ‘here and now’
- Intergenerational trauma and epigenetics
- Cumulative impact of trauma and the neuroception of safety
- Schizoid, Borderline and Narcissistic defences
- Recovery from pathological relationships and co-dependency
- Dreams, metaphors and interpretations
- Maintaining your professional psychotherapy identify and developing your career
In addition to the submission of a final supervisor’s report, you will need to complete two x 2500 word essays as well as a presentation reflecting on your identity as a psychotherapist.
