Jacob Johanssen appointed as Founding Scholar of the British Psychoanalytic Council.
Jacob Johanssen has been appointed a Founding Scholar of the British Psychoanalytic Council. This is in recognition of his ‘significant contribution to the advancement of psychoanalytical thinking’ in academia and beyond. The BPC is the professional registration body for the UK’s leading psychoanalytical practitioners. Up until recently, affiliations were open solely to qualified clinicians trained in the practice of psychoanalysis, psychoanalytical psychotherapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
This newly created category expands the BPC’s purview by recognising the enormous contribution that academics and scholars have made to the study of psychoanalysis through research and publication. Being a Founding Scholar can open up further opportunities for debate, collaboration and knowledge exchange between the BPC, academia and beyond.
