NCSPP

Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

Pluralism...a buzz word these days, sometimes embraced and sometimes overtly rejected by clinicians. Psychoanalytic pluralism...as I write this, I wonder what our constituency thinks of this concept?

This time of year I like driving out to the Southern California desert. The desert constitutes a place we may think of as offering nothing.

The Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis (ICP) would like to offer members of the Northern California psychoanalytic community a brief update, letting you know about new training opportunities and an upcoming clinically oriented event.
