NCSPP

Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

For evidence that the psychoanalytic lens can clarify much beyond the clinical scene, one need look no further than this month's roster of analytic happenings in our community. From cinema, to politics, to theater, to spirituality, a wide array of subjects will be examined from the analytic point of view.

Those seeking insight in their clinical work will also find much to enjoy in November, as critical issues like eating disorders, medication consultations, and pain management receive careful consideration at the hands of experienced clinicians. We encourage you to use our event listings as means to deepen your investment in the collaborative work of our community.

We hope you enjoy this month's issue, and we hope you'll join NCSPP to assist us in fostering a vibrant psychoanalytic community in Northern California.

This month I'd like to highlight two compelling and significant events happening in the coming weeks. Each addresses crucial community needs, each in a different way.

Nearly 20 percent of the soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have acute Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. More than one million men and women have been deployed so far.

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