PRESIDENT'S REMARKS: MELISSA HOLUB, PH.D.
As an IMPULSE reader, you are likely aware that NCSPP undertook this newsletter to connect the analytic community and keep us all abreast of the varied events for interested practitioners in the Bay Area. I would like to share three opportunities appropriate for all local analytic clinicians.
Any licensed mental health provider can get access to PEP (Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing) for just $55 a year. PEP is a "fully searchable digital archive of classic psychoanalytic texts" with access to dozens of books and journals and over 59,000 articles. This is great deal for candidates, writers, researchers, and reading groups. The route to your reduced rate is via membership in Division 39 -- the Division of Psychoanalysis of the American Psychological Association of which NCSPP is a local chapter. You can find out more, including how to become a member of Division 39, by going to www.division39.org.
Also, NCSPP members can take advantage of a discounted rate for a subscription to the International Journal of Psychoanalysis. The special NCSPP annual rate of $170 represents a 44% discount on the publisher's rate of $301. An IJP subscription allows online access to current and back content from 2009 -- 2006 at no extra charge. This special offer is only available to our members in the Fall.
Finally, NCSPP is dedicated to psychoanalytic practitioners at all levels of their career. In addition to offering courses designed for early-to-seasoned clinicians, NCSPP wants to support the development of mid-career psychoanalytically oriented teachers. If you have experience teaching, deep knowledge in a particular topic and have an idea for an offering through NCSPP, you can submit a proposal. Please allow 2-3 weeks before we respond. Also know that, depending on the time of year, our course calendar may already be set. We do want to hear from you, and if we cannot accommodate your course, we will be happy to give you feedback and consider your course at a future time.
I hope many of you will be sparked to take advantage of any of the above offerings. We are a community with bounty to share.
