NCSPP

Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

I must have struck a chord last month in my column. I've received a number of responses from pre-licensed people who are interested in being mentored. I've also heard from a number of licensed members expressing their interest in being a mentor.

Since we live, work and play in a geographical hotbed of both psychoanalysis and technology, it seems important to reflect upon how the two may or may not converge.
