President's Remarks

by Terrance McLarnan, MFT

NCSPP has been offering courses and events as well as social and outreach activities for more than 20 years and has been a leader and innovator in psychoanalytic education. Our courses are available to all members of the community, and we provide CE credits for psychologists, social workers and MFTs.  Courses are available in several geographical regions, including San Francisco, East Bay, and soon the North Bay.  We offer a significant discount for NCSPP members for all our courses and events, and some of our social events are free to members.  

We are very excited about our 2014 Fall calendar of events, which includes the start of our year-long Intensive Study Group and a course on Clinical Experiences of Negative Representation in the Consulting Room.  On October 18th we are offering Family Romance in the Countertransferencewith Kelley Gin, Psy.D. and L. Eileen Keller, Ph.D., and our 7th Annual Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Event, Growing Old Together in Mind and Body with Andrew Balfour, Ms.Sc., will be held on October 25, 2014.
