Establishment and nameEdit

Ernest Jones established the society in 1913, shortly after he returned to London from Canada. The society had 13 founding members including William Mackenzie, Maurice Nicoll and David Eder.[1]

In 1919, due to disagreements with some jungian members, the London Psychoanalytical Society was disbanded and re-founded as the British Psychoanalytical society. The society incorporates the Institute of Psychoanalysis which provides training and clinical services.
