Introducing psychoanalytic ideas on violence, delinquency and sexual deviation

Course overview

This course – a series of monthly talks – introduces the key concepts from the psychodynamic and developmental understanding of criminality, violence and sexual deviation.

It is aimed at a wide range of professionals who are interested in gaining some psychoanalytic understanding of sexual deviation, delinquency and violence


Lectures will be given by leading experts in the field of forensic psychotherapy and personality disorder. After each talk, you will have an opportunity to discuss the issues raised and to bring up related interests and experience from your own work.

The particular focus of the talks and discussion will be on those clients/patients who are often referred to as complex, difficult or antisocial: they actually act out in criminal and/or violent ways or their sexual behaviour damages themselves or other people. Having ways of thinking about and understanding something of this behaviour often helps the people who work with them to manage the challenges they present.

While some people may wish to attend only specific talks during the year, the course has been designed to be taken as a whole. As the course group develops during the year, it helps when ideas generated earlier can then be integrated with later discussion to improve everyone’s understanding.

The series will be chaired by Dr Alla Rubitel, Psychoanalyst and Consultant Psychiatrist in Forensic Psychotherapy.

This course will introduce the key concepts from the psychodynamic and developmental understanding of criminality, violence and perversion.

This course would be of interest to those working in mental health, social care or criminal justice settings.

It is aimed at a wide range of professionals who are interested in gaining some psychoanalytic understanding of sexual deviation, delinquency and violence

New dates will be advertised here in due course.
