Salon | Social Event
6:00 pm
Oakland Museum of California, East Bay

Welcome, CMH clinicians, to a night of community building! 

Finding time to build professional connections and take care of ourselves can feel draining and difficult after the frenetic pace of agency work in community mental health. 

We’re beginning a series of community events at various Bay Area museums for CMH clinicians to build relationships and comradery across clinics and increase our sense of play. Our inaugural meet up takes place on Friday, June 8, at the Oakland Museum of California, a progressive institution with a strong focus on the lives of Bay Area residents.

Are you itching to get out of the office to enjoy the evening while the sun is still out? Come join us for a fun happy hour gathering at Beer Baron in Oakland. NCSPP Community Events Committee is officially kicking off our quarterly happy hour events, a chance to connect with other clinicians through drinks, food and conversation. Feel free to invite people who are not members of NCSPP-all are welcome. Hope to see you there!

Workshop
2:00 - 4:00 pm
St. John's Presbyterian Church, East Bay
In this introductory event to the year-long Intensive Study Groups in San Francisco and the East Bay, we will explore how to work with the negative in the therapeutic process. We will have an informal, dynamic conversation with Megan Rundel Ph.D. and Alexander Zinchenko Ph.D. from the East Bay, as well as Era Lowenstein Ph.D. and Diane Borden Ph.D. from San Francisco. If you are considering registering for the upcoming ISG in the Fall, this introductory conversation is an opportunity to bring your questions and comments to four of our instructors.

September 2018

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.
