Upcoming Courses & Events
Difference Matters! At this time in history, psychotherapists are met with incredible diversity in our offices and clinics. We will consider culture, race, ethnicity, and immigration from a psychoanalytic viewpoint, and attend to the implications and influences of such difference(s) on the therapist and patient. We will also consider traumas that are embedded in racialized histories, and the need to locate them in the countertransference and articulate them.
The protagonist is a teen living in 1970s San Francisco who enters into an affair with her mother’s boyfriend. Join us for a Sunday matinee screening of this 2015
film exploring emerging sexuality and Oedipal conflicts coupled with a discussion by Dr. Lisa Buchberg.
Join NCSPP and PCPG for a special event to introduce the innovative Latin American psychoanalytic model called Link Theory to the San Francisco Bay Area psychoanalytic community. Our visiting scholar, Monica Vorchheimer, is an award-winning training and supervising psychoanalyst and couple psychotherapist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She will describe the historical background and theoretical concepts that constitute this rich and unique approach to understanding relationships.
