The Child Analytic Program of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis welcomes you to a series of presentations representing the remarkable scope of child psychoanalysis today. These discussions will offer us an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the mind and of human development seen through the lens of clinical experience with children and adolescents. We also will examine the use of film portraying the thinking processes of children.

Join us for a romantic comedy drama that creates a fairytale world of loss and redemption.  "Moonrise Kingdom" tells the story of a 12 year old orphan boy who runs away from a summer camp to connect with an equally disconnected girl.  He knows she understands him as no one else can.  This epic tale explores the tangled world of adults and how a discarded foster child risks love and connection on his own terms.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

Reyna Cowan is a psychoanalyst and child therapist.  She is a graduate of PINC and faculty at SFCP and the film critic for KPFA Radio.
