Course
9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC), San Francisco

One of the cornerstones of psychoanalytic theory is the idea of the unconscious, but just what this means can be elusive. This course will review major psychoanalytic theories of the unconscious, including those of Freud, Klein, Bion, and Matte Blanco. We will discuss the role of the unconscious in object relations and developmental theories as well as consider the unconscious in light of contemporary explorations in consciousness.

Lecture | Event
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
The David Brower Center, East Bay

This presentation will include a roundtable discussion on how some of the same factors that influence interpersonal exchanges also promote change and collaboration in decision-making, from psychoanalytic theory to ideas found in leadership and negotiation. For example, first impressions play a role in shaping initial dialogue in both psychotherapy and policy negotiation.

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