NCSPP

Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

Finally. The sweet swelter of San Francisco summer sweeps into September. Now that we're falling into autumn, why not turn over a new leaf? Sign up for a class and warm up to new ideas. Turn the heat up when you present your case in a consultation group. Meet other hot psychoanalytic minds at an open house, happy hour, or theatre performance. Ignite a burning discussion at a seminar, or blaze your way through a hot-off-the-press psychoanalytic book. Just look at this month's calendar and you'll see why it's getting hot in here.

And when summer's sizzle wanes, let us know what you like about IMPULSE and what you'd like to see more of. We also warmly invite you to be part of NCSPP and hope that you'll join today.

In our newest feature, IMPULSE will introduce you to recently published books of psychoanalytic — and often local — interest with a brief author interview.

If much emotional activity occurs unconsciously, how can we identify emotional triggers? Why is it so difficult to modify how we behave once we have become emotional? Can we ever truly change what we become emotional about?
