2016 - 2017 San Francisco Psychotherapy Forum

The Bay Area Psychotherapy Forums are monthly case conferences open to students and clinicians at all levels of experience interested in improving their ability to work psychoanalytically. Each month a psychotherapist presents a therapy case of particular interest or concern. A different analyst is invited to each forum to discuss how they listen to the case material, fostering a lively discussion with the audience. The clinician group that attends builds a networking base while welcoming new colleagues.

Attendees gain:

  • Psychodynamic case formulation skills
  • Exposure to different theories for conceptualizing psychopathology
  • Improved abilities in listening for transference/countertransferene themes
  • Approaches for therapeutic action and technique

The forum is free for SFCP members, candidates and community members. If you are not a current community member of SFCP you are very welcome to come and check out the forum. If you find that you wish to attend on a more regular basis, we ask that you consider becoming a member. Click the following links to learn more about Community Membership.

The forum is now offered in three Bay Area locations: San Francisco, East Bay and Peninsula.
