A new structure, suitable for the running of a register, was agreed at the UKSCP 1992 AGM, comprising a governing board, a registration board and a training standards committee. A motion by the British Psycho-Analytical Society to create an appointed permanent ‘security council’ with the power to make binding decisions for the whole conference was tabled. A similar motion by the Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists in the NHS was set aside. A few weeks later, two training organizations and four societies left the Conference, first attempting to form an alternative umbrella organization for psychotherapy, and now trying to form a so-called ‘super league’ for the psychoanalytic organizations who believe that the analysis of trainees should only be carried out by Institute or Society of Analytical Psychology analysts or those analysed by them.

An SGM held in March 1992 agreed some overall training criteria for the full range of psychotherapies represented in the Conference and agreed the composition of the above-mentioned boards.

The ‘visiting’ process in the analytic section was completed in the autumn of 1992, and criteria for training, based on the findings, were agreed; schools were scrutinized and areas of further work identified. The section voted to change its name to Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.

The 1993 AGM saw the culmination of years of work! The UK Council for Psychotherapy was established, a governing board and a registration board put in place. Since then, a training standards committee has been appointed and the register now compiled is being launched this spring with the support and encouragement of the Department of Health. Hopefully this is the time for us to work together to enhance the quality of the services we provide.
