Goldsmiths' operating principles for 2022-23 have not yet been finalised but should changes be required to teaching in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will publish these as early as possible for prospective students wishing to start their programme in September 2022.
This course is offered on both a full- and part-time basis. Your research may be clinically and/or theoretically focused in the fields of psychoanalysis, analytical psychology and psychodynamic counselling.
We welcome applications for PhD research from all suitably qualified students from many backgrounds.
This might mean that your previous educational and research background may be in fields such as the arts, film and theatre, literature, history or clinical psychotherapeutic or medical practice.
Current and past research topics involve:
- the relationship between psychotherapy and time
- the use of mindfulness in combination with psychodynamic techniques with obsessional patients
- the 'bride in white'
- the contemporary status of Freud’s classical theories.
Students may be supervised jointly by a departmental academic and one from a further discipline if the subject requires.
