The West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy (WMIP) was established for the promotion and advancement of the study and research into all matters relating to psychotherapy and the dissemination of the useful results of any such study and research for the benefit of the public.
The Institute is a major centre of training for psychoanalytic psychotherapists and is committed to equal opportunities. It welcomes everyone without discrimination on the grounds of race, class, culture, gender, marital status, physical disability, religion or sexual orientation.
The Training in Analytical Psychotherapy at the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy was founded in 1990. It aims to provide an experience of learning from which its graduates will qualify as competent and responsible practitioners of Analytical Psychotherapy.
The Analytical Psychotherapy Training currently offers three training options:
- Four year Training in Analytical Psychotherapy (Clinical qualifying training leading to BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) registration and Professional membership of the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy)
- An Introduction to Analytical Psychotherapy Course – for people who are keen to engage with principles of analytical psychotherapy but who do not wish to start a qualifying training at this point
- Two year Infant Observation Training
The Analytical Psychotherapy Training Committee (APTC) also organises an annual series of five public lectures given by visiting speakers as well as members of the Midlands community.
WMIP provides a regular programme of events, lectures and seminars. These lectures are given by Institute members or visiting lecturers and are based on topics of interest to practising psychotherapists, and also those working in related fields such as medicine, nursing, social work, pastoral care and counselling
