Community mental health practitioners are under enormous pressure to deliver more services with fewer resources, while the problems that we are challenged to resolve are increasingly complex. As we strive to provide meaningful interventions that address the social, psychic, and justice demands of those who struggle the most, we have an even greater need to carve out spaces — both within our minds as clinicians and within our places of practice — to reflect on our work and connect with one another. Since our inception in 2012, we discovered that many of us are passionate about encouraging a dialogue between community work and psychoanalytic thinking. We hope to continue to build a community around doing so.
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.
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.
The board of directors is pleased to announce the expansion of course offerings to the North Bay. We are encouraging all members who are interested in teaching for NCSPP to submit a course proposal of your area of interest and expertise.
