Course
9:00 - 11:30 am
St. Clement's Church, East Bay

This seminar will provide a close clinical examination of race and culture in contemporary psychoanalytic theory and treatment. Each week will focus on the themes of a pertinent theoretical paper, and case material will be discussed to illuminate technical considerations. Particular attention will be paid to the difficulty of speaking about race — working with the dissociation of racial states, the collapse of potential space, and the vulnerabilities and melancholia that emerge in treatment for both therapist and client when racial tensions are allowed to surface. While keeping the Eurocentric nature of psychoanalytic writing in mind, we will attempt to use our theories to ground us as we search for new ways of working with race and culture.

NCSPP and PCPG (Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Group) are pleased to announce the 10th Anniversary of our Annual Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Lecture. This year, we are honored to host esteemed couple psychoanalyst from Tavistock Relationships, Mary Morgan, who will be focusing on technique in psychoanalytic couple psychotherapy. She will be addressing the complexities of what is meant by a “couple interpretation” and what can go wrong, including “incorrect” interpretations, problems with the timing of interpretations, and those involving unprocessed countertransference enactments.

Mental health professionals are required to take 4-6 hours of continuing education in law and ethics in order to renew their licenses. Too often these programs focus on risk management and impose fear-based rules for practice. This program will apply a clinical perspective to legal and ethical practice and begin by reviewing a model for legal and ethical decision making based on the broad ethical principles that form the basis for most professional ethics codes.
