Welcome to the South African Psychoanalytic Confederation

The SAPC unites under one organization groups of clinicians from diverse professions whose therapeutic work is informed by psychoanalytic theory and its application. This approach concerns itself with the relationship between conscious and unconscious mental processes as well as with the relationship between the clinician and the patient or group. It is a therapeutic process which helps patients understand and resolve their problems by increasing their awareness of their inner world, its relation to their historical context, and its influence over their lives and past and present relationships. Psychoanalytic approaches are concerned not merely with symptom alleviation but with self-discovery and maturation. It aims for deep-seated change in personality and emotional development.

      Good day Val,
      you need to email or contact one of the member groups on the member groups tab and ask to join the group and once you are part of one of the groups, you will then automatically be part of the SAPC.
      I hope that helps
