Drawing upon both critical management theory and the developing field of systems-psychodynamics, our innovative course will be of particular interest to anyone who wishes to understand the complex processes that impact on change in organisations.

Postgraduate Diplomas last for six to nine months (full-time) and include the modules and assessed work of a Masters, without a dissertation.

We hold free evening Open Seminars on topics relevant to psychoanalysis which are open to students, staff and members of the public.
