The Scottish Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists (SAPP) was established in 1972. Its aims were to be a centre for the dissemination of knowledge about the nature and significance of psychoanalytic psychotherapy through research and teaching, and to provide a high quality and fully accredited training of adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy in Scotland.
SAPP is a member organisation of the British Psychoanalytic Council.
SAPP is managed by a Board of Trustees who are responsible for its governance and its activities which include:
- Continuing Professional Development for members
- Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Scotland
- Ethics and Professional Standards
- Promoting and Disseminating Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Scotland
