Upcoming Courses & Events
It’s the start of a new term, and summer is winding down.
In this workshop, Drs. Gin and Keller will present his or her own theory of work with parents, including clinical material, followed by discussion with each other and the audience.
Located in a private screening room featuring theater-style seating and premium sound (along with popcorn and snacks), the entire NCSPP community and their friends are invited to this screening of Don Jon (2013), a film directed by Joseph Gordon Levitt about porn addiction and the desire to find love. Dr. Corcoran will lead a discussion around reactions to this film. Join us for an enlivening discussion, and meet other members of our community.
NCSPP and PCPG are honored to host Andrew Balfour, of the Tavistock Clinic, at this year’s 7th Annual Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Event. Mr. Balfour will talk from a psychoanalytic perspective about working with couples in older age. Mr. Balfour will discuss how, for older couples negotiating this stage of life conjointly, the threat of breakdown surrounding the integrity of mental and physical functioning can present profound psychic difficulty, as well as opportunities for working through earlier problematic emotional dynamics. Drawing from his clinical work, Mr. Balfour will present a paper exploring some of the developmental challenges and opportunities in psychoanalytic work with older couples. Leslye Russell, MFT, will serve as discussant and, in the afternoon session, a local clinician will present a clinical case of a couple to Mr. Balfour.
We are seeking nominations for the NCSPP 2014 Community Service Award to be presented for outstanding community service by an individual or a mental health organization in the field of psychoanalytic psychology.
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.
