We invite you to celebrate our 75th anniversary (1942 - 2017) of SFPI&S and SFCP. This year marks the start of our celebration of the achievements of a small group of psychoanalysts three quarters of a century ago who started a psychoanalytic study group that became a foundation for clinical training and treatment in San Francisco. We have many things to celebrate: we are at home in our new building, we have a board range of well-attended programs that indicate a growing interest in psychoanalysis in the Bay Area, and we have made strides towards financial stability, together with providing a focus for the future, and charting a bold new direction.
During this year we will be looking back at our history. We will be featuring a series of interviews in our SFCP Newsletters with members who were active in the Center (or Institute) at different times over the course of the last 75 years, in order to present a picture of its history and development.
The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis is dedicated to advancing the vitality and enduring value of psychoanalysis in Northern California and beyond.
The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis was organized in 2007, combining the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute & Society, founded in 1941, with the San Francisco Foundation for Psychoanalysis, founded in 1991. The SFCP is a not for profit organization with more than 200 practicing analysts and more than 45 candidates (psychoanalysts in training).
The Center provides an extensive training program in psychoanalysis. The Center also sponsors a large, vibrant Extension Division which offers classes and seminars to mental health professionals as well as to the general public. In addition, it maintains Low / Moderate Fee Referral Services for adults, children and adolescents as well as providing other mental health services and programs for the general community.
