APPCIOS is an independent professional association whose members have demonstrated expertise in psychodynamic practice and counselling within organisational settings. It is not associated with any one training organisation but is able to accept practitioners from a wide variety of in-house and “portfolio” trainings.   APPCIOS is a Member Institution of the British Psychoanalytic Council.

Our aims

- To be an on-line community for psychodynamic practitioners.
- To offer recognised, non-traditional, portfolio-based trainings in psychodynamic
- To provide accreditation for new and established organisations offering psychodynamic training.
- To provide continuing professional development to members through webinars,
therapeutic supervision and mentoring.

Organisational therapy

Psychodynamic theories make an important contribution to understanding the experience of working in a team. Helping workers to make sense of the unconscious dynamics within teams and organisations is at the heart of what an organisational therapist can provide.

Organisational accreditation and training

APPCIOS can accredit your training.  Whether you are an established training organisation or a new provider, we can help you write or enhance your bespoke training programmes to meet APPCIOS criteria. We would be very pleased to hear from you.

It is all very well studying to improve your skills but unless those skills are validated by accreditation and continually developed within a professional network, then people like me, who work with very vulnerable children and families, have few resources to turn to and can become isolated in the workplace.
