CAP was formed in 1995 to provide a home for those Jungian analysts whose organisations had left the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) in order to join the British Confederation of Psychotherapists (BCP). (This later changed its name to the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).) Everyone in CAP is on an equal footing.
CAP’s purpose was set to provide a platform for Jungian interaction and activity across all the four (now five) International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP) organisations in London. It was felt that the ‘umbrella’ group of all the IAAP organisations worked well at a formal level but did not do much in the way of integrated activities.
It has put on a range of conferences and lectures of wide appeal. In particular, CAP’s offerings contribute from a Jungian perspective to the understanding of cultural society, politics, the arts and religion. These events are interesting, stimulating, challenging and convivial. CAP members attend at reduced rates. Current and past events may be viewed here: http://www.confederation-an-psych.uk/events/
