North of England Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists

NEAPP has combined with Northumbria University to provide a Professional Doctorate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.

The Professional Doctorate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, offered by the Northumbria University, is in two parts – a clinical training component and a research component.  It is open to Psychoanalysts and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council and Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists accredited by the Association of Child Psychotherapists.  These trainings constitute the clinical component.  The research component offers a structured method of continuing professional development aimed at furthering research skills and contributing to the development of the field.  The combination of these two parts leads to a Doctorate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.

Research in the context of a professional doctorate should be of relevance to clinical practice and should in some form contribute to the field of clinical work.  The programme comprises a taught course in research methodology and a research thesis.  The length of the thesis will be a maximum of 60,000 words.

The course is part-time over three years and the current fees are £2,050 per annum.
