Pretoria Psychoanalytic Group

Area: Pretoria

Contact Person: Arlene Joffe; 012 346 3373

Nature and Function of the Group: The group falls under the auspices of the (Johannesburg) Institute for Psychodynamic Child Psychotherapy and is run by Arlene Joffe. We meet monthly to further our education in and understanding of psychoanalytic work. To this end we read and discuss psychoanalytic theory as well as present and discuss clinical work.

Criteria/Fees/Application: We are a small group of 8 people and for the moment we are closed to new members as we wish to preserve the atmosphere of a small group in which it becomes possible to be open about the difficulties of the work. The group is only for qualified practitioners, who are working psychoanalytically or interested in working psychoanalytically.
