Upcoming Courses & Events

Outreach
2:00 - 4:00 pm
Instituto Familiar de al Raza, San Francisco

In high school-based settings (and other community mental health ones) therapists become quite immersed in the worlds of their patients. They observe how they impact those around them in the milieu, talk to their teachers and school administration staff about academic performances and peer relationships, and have collateral meetings with their parents. This additional information about and experience of a patient’s world adds to their psychic presence and can significantly impact the transference-countertransference matrix.

Student Paper Presentation
6:30 - 8:30 pm
The Psychotherapy Institute (TPI), East Bay

Community mental health practitioners are asked to address a range of clients’ needs, including case management and advocacy work, which can bring about complex enactments between therapist and client.

Course
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC), San Francisco

Given that the essential training of skilled therapists is experiential in nature and covered by the arena of supervision, the supervisory relationship makes a vital and crucial contribution to the clinical growth and development of a psychotherapeutic and psychoanalytic identity.

Scientific Meeting
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Wright Institute, East Bay

In this presentation, Winnicott’s theory of infant development is expanded to consider the unique psychic situation of twins. Two infants come into being in a matrix of relationships that is more complex than the single baby-mother unit. The mother of twins is preoccupied with both of her babies, and their internal worlds will include a social context in addition to a sense of an individual self. Their formative experiences include conflicts between being primary and environmental, between being interrupted and being an interruption.

We are committed to the study of psychoanalytic psychology and to encourage its interest in Northern California's professional and general communities.

NCSPP’s varied array of learning opportunities; our journal fort da; our e-newsletter Impulse; and numerous special events and projects are all brought to you by scores of volunteers who work to support NCSPP’s mission.
