Upcoming Courses & Events

Course
7:30 - 9:00 pm
College Avenue Presbyterian Church, East Bay

The focus of this class will be on learning to work more effectively with chronically destructive patients. These are patients whose destructive response to opportunities and treatments in their lives often puts them at great risk. Through focused readings and clinical examples, we will explore the delicate equilibrium between life and death instincts as a means of refining and enhancing our clinical capacity with these challenging patients.

Student Paper Presentation
6:30 - 8:30 pm
The Wright Institute, East Bay

Please join the Pre-Licensed Clinicians Committee and fort da in celebrating Jonathan Rousell’s paper, “Killing Time: Omnipotent Fantasies of Preservation, Hyper Compartmentalization, and the Denial of Death in the Digital Age,” which was the recipient of fort da’s 2015 Student Paper Award. Jonathan will present his paper followed by a discussion with Peter Goldberg.

Workshop
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Marin, North Bay

This workshop is focused on understanding trauma from an intersubjective, psychoanalytic perspective. The analysts describe in their case examples occurrences in some patients of such intense psychic significance that unrepresented states of mind result.

We are committed to the study of psychoanalytic psychology and to encourage its interest in Northern California's professional and general communities.

NCSPP’s varied array of learning opportunities; our journal fort da; our e-newsletter Impulse; and numerous special events and projects are all brought to you by scores of volunteers who work to support NCSPP’s mission. Our educational programs include continuing education credit for Psychologists, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers.
