NCSPP

Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

Impulse is a community newsletter produced by the Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology (NCSPP) and distributed electronically at no cost to subscribers. We envision Impulse as an integrative source for local news, events, and thinking of interest to the psychoanalytically inclined. Our goal is to be your guide as you explore the Bay Area's rich array of analytic resources.

We invite you to become a member of NCSPP, if you are not already. And, we welcome you as a subscriber to Impulse. Join us as we highlight the exceptional diversity of psychoanalytic thought and practice in Northern California.

THE 2015 SEASONED CLINICIANS PROGRAM

IDA

Hauntingly beautiful, shot in arresting black and white and set in 1960 in Poland, Ida, a film by Pawlikowski, is the story of a young orphaned novitiate named Anna sent to meet her only living relative, Wanda, before she takes her vows. The two, virtual strangers, embark upon a journey together to unearth the truth of who murdered their family during World War II and where their bodies were buried.

by Elise Geltman, LCSW
