'Psychosocial Studies is characterised by (a) its explicit inter or trans-disciplinarity, (b) its development of non-positivistic theory, method and praxis and (c) its orientation towards progressive social and personal change ... Psychological issues and subjective experiences cannot be abstracted from societal, cultural, and historical contexts; nor can they be deterministically reduced to the social. Similarly, social and cultural worlds are shaped by psychological processes and intersubjective relations.'

'We believe that the rich body of knowledge contained in the psychoanalytic and Jungian traditions, when combined with scientific advances in our understanding of the human mind and development, provides the most rigorous possible basis for psychotherapy. It also provides a powerful and distinctive perspective on many issues that we face: questions of mental wellbeing, health and social policy, issues around sexuality and gender, how we make sense of contemporary media and culture are just some examples. Our overarching aim then is to make the benefits of this type of therapy available to as many people who need it as possible, as well as to acquaint as many people as possible with this extraordinary body of ideas. We believe that in pursuing this goal we can help change people’s lives for the better ... We will also work to ensure that our events programme deals with the range of contemporary issues that people face. We are also making sure that we take full advantage of all the technological platforms that can make teaching and learning, and engaging with the public more accessible wherever they live.'

and psychoanalyst who built on Freud’s discoveries of 
how the mind works. His main emphasis was on the 
genuine flourishing of the "person" and the nurturing by the "other" of a "sense of self". Winnicott once said 
his concern was with "living persons, whole living and 
loving". His therapeutic aim was to enable his patients to live in a creative and authentic way.'
