Due to the frenetic pace of agency work in community mental health, finding time for self-care and building professional connections, among other things, can be hard! The social mixers intend to address both needs by providing a culturally engaging social event where folks who do similar work across different agencies can get together to build connections in a relaxing and fun way.
This reading group is for clinicians working in community mental health organizations and open to interns, trainees, and staff therapists in those settings. The group will discuss writings by Kirkland Vaughans in preparation for the Annual Lecture on Plugging the School-to-Prison Pipeline. The purpose of the group is to be familiarized with his work at an introductory level prior to the lecture and have conversations with others working in the field about this very topic.
NCSPP Members are invited to attend a comedy event in San Francisco, humorously named, “Cheaper Than Therapy.” As therapists, we can appreciate comedy as an antidote to angst, providing instant relief with the perfect punchline. Let’s have a good time laughing at the jokes and possibly ourselves!
We will meet for drinks at 7pm in the bar before the show begins. You are welcome to invite your friends and partners to join the fun.
NCSPP’s Pre-licensed Clinicians Committee invites you to the 24th in a series of conversations with experienced clinicians in the field of depth psychology. Join your colleagues for an evening of food, wine, and timely discussion with Dr. Francisco González about Social/Community Psychoanalysis, which not only has links to questions of culture, race, ethnicity, and identity, but also opens the larger question of what we understand psychoanalysis itself to be.
