Intensive Study Group
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
St. Clement's Church, East Bay

The 2016-17 ISG will explore clinical and theoretical implications of the accelerating technological developments of the last quarter century. We will consider whether these changes demand corresponding alterations in therapeutic technique, including the frame-altering deployment of Skype and texting. Might relational practice or modes of intervention derived from field theory or trauma theory, for example, better respond to the needs of a techno-savvy, techno-anxious, or technophobic patient population than more classical “one-person” modes of practice? How do we understand the ways that we and our patients make use of the self-representational capabilities afforded by digital media?

This course will provide theoretical knowledge and practical approaches for treating older and medically ill adults. Key concepts include empirical support for psychodynamic therapy with this population, the manic culture of medicine and its impact on relationships with medical clinicians, and the effects of individual manic defenses on adapting to aging or illness.

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.
