Organisations are crucial in the care of vulnerable clients.

Staff in regular contact with a vulnerable client group are best placed
to offer them therapeutic support.

Psychodynamic practice need not be confined to the consulting room: it can be part of organisational life

APPCIOS trainings equip staff to create and maintain a therapeutic environment wherever they work.

APPCIOS members:

  • are equipped to work as psychodynamic clinicians while remaining in their existing professional identities.
  • are trained to work self-reflectively, through the quality of the relationships they create with clients and colleagues.
  • are trained to understand the dynamics of their organisation and of the groups and individuals within it.

Our approach derives from the traditions of psychodynamic psychotherapy, group relations, family therapy and the therapeutic community movement.
