The Masters/Post-Graduate Diploma programme in Psychoanalytic Observational Studies in Leeds is provided by the Northern School of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy (NSCAP) and accredited by the University of Leeds.
The course is designed to help people deepen their understanding and awareness of human development and interaction and to help participants to think about their work from a psychoanalytic perspective. The course is relevant to teachers, psychologists, child and adolescent psychiatrists, social workers, occupational therapists, nurses and allied professional disciplines including those working in adult mental health services. The course offers participants the opportunity to develop observational skills within a psychoanalytic framework and to apply this in their professional work.
Completion of the course is a pre-requisite for those wishing to apply for the clinical training in child and adolescent psychotherapy. Alternatively, students may wish to undertake individual modules of the course as an introduction to the subject area or as an aspect of their continuing professional development.
This is a part-time course with teaching taking place one day a week in mainly small-group seminars. The course day is currently on a Friday. The programme is designed to give students flexibility to complete the modules over a period of time appropriate to their personal and professional development and to fit in with their work and other commitments. The majority of students usually take 3 to 4 years to complete the Post-Graduate Diploma and 3-5 years to complete the Masters. The minimum period to complete the Post-Graduate Diploma is 2 years and 3 years for the Masters. It is also possible to undertake individual modules without registering for either qualification. In all circumstances Infant Observation and Work Discussion must be taken together.
The programme content can be broadly divided into two areas:

  • The close observation of infants and young children in their home or care setting together with the opportunity to reflect on and discuss this observational experience in a small-group setting facilitated by experienced child and adolescent psychotherapists. These groups provide opportunities also to reflect on the student’s work setting.

  • A series of seminars and tutorials enabling the student to become familiar with a large body of theoretical knowledge concerning child development, psychoanalytic theory and child development research including basic research methodology.
