Through readings and case discussion, this course will address the complex issues and necessary modifications for delivering ongoing, deep treatment when the patient is out of the room. We will also review the legal requirements and ethical issues involved in using the telephone, Skype, or the Internet for the long-term.
Freud’s Oedipal complex has had the most profound and lasting impact on psychoanalytic thought. His conception of the Oedipal has gone through numerous transformations but has undeniably stood the test of time. This class will revisit Freud’s original theory.
Community mental health practitioners are under enormous pressure to deliver more services with fewer resources, while the problems that we are challenged to resolve are increasingly complex. As we strive to provide meaningful interventions that address the social, psychic and justice demands of those who struggle the most, we have an even greater need to carve out spaces, both within our minds as clinicians and within our places of practice, to reflect on our work and connect with one another.
This summer the NCSPP Pre-Licensed Committee will be hosting a series of reading groups, pairing seminal analytic works with Ogden’s essays from his book Creative Readings. Each month we will have one meeting to discuss a seminal paper and then another to discuss Ogden’s interpretation of that text. Please join us as we think together about Searles' “Oedipul Love in the Countertransference.”
This group will meet two Sundays in August: Aug 4th & 18th.
Inspired by Bravo’s Inside the Actor’s Studio, NCSPP’s Pre-licensed Clinicians Committee invites you to the 13th in a series of conversations with senior clinicians in the field of psychoanalytic psychology. Join your colleagues for a stimulating evening of food, wine, and conversation with Dr. John Beebe in the warmth of a private home in San Francisco. Dr. Beebe will share his professional journey in conversation with Jason Butler, Ph.D.
The end of the 20th century ushered in a new era of women working outside the home. Now commonplace in the 21st century, women are both full-time professionals and full-time mothers; a dual role that ultimately requires that a 3rd party - in the form of nanny, preschool teacher or family daycare provider–enter the family.
NCSPP and PCPG are honored to host Stanley Ruszczynski, B.Sc., at this year's 6th Annual Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Event. Mr. Ruszczynski will talk about “Couples on the Couch” — working with couples psychoanalytically. While the theory and practice of psychoanalysis has grown out of — and continues to be greatly influenced by — intensive therapeutic work with individuals, this presentation will show how the fundamentals of contemporary psychoanalysis are also practiced by the psychoanalytic couple therapist.
Along with Dreams and the Oedipal Complex, Freud’s conception of psychosexuality and its developmental stages stands as one of the central pillars of psychoanalytic theory and practice. Freud’s insights into the passions of childhood and infantile desire remain as startling and important now as they were in 1905.
Managing loss is a complicated and intense process and one that brings people — directly or indirectly — into treatment. What if what has been lost cannot be seen, cannot be found? This course will explore this world: the inability to mourn one’s own internal objects. These tenacious internal losses include those who are ambivalent about separating; odes to the dead mother (and the dead father); those who are the receptacles for other's unprocessed loss; and those who try to protect themselves from managing pain by cutting themselves off from any real, alive feeling within.
