Help identify priorities for preventing suicide amongst autistic people 

On average, autistic people are nine times more likely to die by suicide than non-autistic people. Leading researchers and charities are looking for health professionals, policy makers and service providers to join autistic people and their families in helping shape future prevention plans.

Please consider completing this online survey about priorities for research and policy:

The project is led by Dr Sarah Cassidy at Nottingham University with support from Newcastle and Coventry Universities, the UK’s autism research charity Autistica, the NIHR’s James Lind Alliance and international autism research organisation INSAR.

WHO THE COURSE IS FOR
Join the bpf’s flagship introductory course – now in
its third year. Psychotherapy Today has been
specifically designed for those who are either
considering a psychotherapy training and/or are
curious about psychoanalytic and Jungian thinking
and how these ideas can be applied to the world in
which we live. The course aims to kindle curiosity,
encourage critical thinking, make connections, and
investigate differences in a creative and inclusive
group setting, enabling students to develop their
own associations and ideas.
You may already be working in related professions,
such as a GP, nursery nurse or social worker, or you
may come from a completely different background.
Life experience is strongly valued.
ABOUT THE COURSE
On each Saturday, two seminars are delivered on a
specific theme; one seminar offers a psychoanalytic,
the other a Jungian perspective. The aim of the
course is to consider how these ways of thinking can
be useful tools for reflecting on and understanding a
broad range of issues. Each seminar is followed by a
facilitated group discussion, in which you can explore
and discuss key ideas. All seminar leaders and
discussion facilitators are bpf psychoanalytic
psychotherapists, Jungian analysts, child and
adolescent psychotherapists or psychoanalysts
working in private practice, the voluntary sector and the NHS.
