As care in our community continues to be of utmost importance, particularly during this especially disrupted and unsettled surround and environment, NCSPP would like to offer resources that we believe are relevant to the clinical practitioners of our membership, and their patients. Please follow this link for further information with the understanding that information and guidelines will continue to develop and evolve. We will do our best to reflect the most current information available.

Due to concerns and uncertainty about the Coronavirus and out of an abundance of caution, NCSPP has made the decision to temporarily discontinue all in-person gatherings for our courses, effective immediately. We will instead be exploring feasible digital means of continuing our current and scheduled programming where and when possible. Current participants and registrants for upcoming courses and events will be contacted by NCSPP with further information and options regarding their course or event of interest. We will reassess this decision and communicate our next steps on April 15th, 2020.

We will continue to make decisions about our programs at appropriate times and with the health and well-being of participants in our minds, as well as with the guidance and any restrictions potentially put in place by state and local health officials.

Workshop
11:30 am - 1:30 pm

This introductory event to the year-long San Francisco and East Bay intensive study groups (ISG) will explore ways to work with patients on the development and absence of capacities for love and its loss. If you’re considering registering for the fall ISG, please join us in this preliminary informal, dynamic conversation with various 2020-21 ISG instructors. This will be an opportunity to bring your questions and comments into the conversation with the instructors.

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.
