Intensive Study Group
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
St. Clement's Church, East Bay

Under the guidance of insightful, experienced instructors, this year’s intensive study groups will investigate theoretical approaches to the negative and practical engagements with it in the clinical setting, considering such topics as trauma, the fusion of Eros and the death drive, negative therapeutic reaction, psychic retreats, perverse modes of relating, destructive narcissism, and excessive splitting. In some sections, reading assignments will be supplemented by films or include plays that vividly illustrate course themes. We invite you to explore with us how apparent challenges to psychotherapy may vitally contribute to the process of human transformation.

Case Conference | Consultation Group
7:00 - 8:30 pm
San Francisco, San Francisco

The frenetic pace of agency work in community mental health makes finding time and space to think deeply about our work difficult. With the pressures of documentation requirements, community trauma, and limited resources, these demands overshadow clinical thinking. In response to the needs of our community, NCSPP is providing an additional forum to reflect on our clinical work. We are offering two consultation groups: one focused on clinical work, the other on supervisory work.

San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP), San Francisco

Furthering the discourse begun in Sue Saperstein’s 2016 NCSPP Course “Difference Matters!,” four individual clinicians commit to speak to the inclusion and clash of radical differences. This dialogue, facilitated by four racially and culturally dissimilar voices, will bring forward the theoretical, historical, and philosophical disparities in our current climate. Our practice of speech is intended to open a necessary, ethical discourse so as to keep learning from the Other and our Otherness.
