NCSPP

Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

A new year offers a paradox. Of course, the turning of the calendar marks the birth of something fresh, unique and never before known. But it also represents a continuation of something very old indeed, advancing time's continuous flow.

Our Northern California psychoanalytic community also embodies both these qualities. Innovative scholarship, current service, and even the use of new technologies to strengthen our community cannot be separated from a thread of rich psychoanalytic history that connects more than 100 years and many continents.

In this spirit, we salute The Study Group Clearinghouse, a novel effort by the Friends of SFPI&S and the SFPI&S Extension Division that uses an inventive idea to bring new life to the long tradition of psychoanalytic consultation groups and study groups. The clearinghouse is a central place to find out about analytic study groups meeting throughout the Bay Area. Posting is free, and the project is sure to help the analytically inclined discover exciting opportunities for education and fellowship.

All of us at IMPULSE look forward to another year chronicling and serving this lively community, and we wish you the best for 2007. We hope you enjoy this month's issue, and we hope you'll join NCSPP to assist us in furthering the community that belongs to all of us.

Who are you? Are you an analyst? A psychotherapist? A student? Do you see people on the couch? In a clinic? Or a hospital? Once a week? Twice a week? Four times? Do you believe that Oedipal phantasies emerge in early infancy?

California College of the Arts offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in fine arts, design, architecture, writing, and curatorial studies on campuses in Oakland and San Francisco.

Many practitioners are applying psychodynamic principles to the work they do, even when treatment doesn't conform to the traditional frame.

The term "blog" refers to a web-based journal wherein individuals offer up their personal experiences to anyone with a web browser.
