MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

You are critical to our success. There are several exciting upcoming events that we want you to place on your calendars. All of them will require your time and willingness to participate.

One highlight on our calendar is the Black Psychoanalysts Speak event. This event is a wonderful opportunity for you to join a very important conversation regarding race and how it is or is not being addressed by Psychoanalysts.

However; this is just the beginning of the conversation…

Marian Banks-Nickleberry, MS, LMSWIt is not often in life that we get great new beginnings. For me the opportunity to join you as the Executive Director of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis is just that. After spend- ing almost three years as the primary care giver for my mother as she embarked on her final jour- ney, I have a new respect for anyone who has the privilege and responsibility of caring for and guiding others. As Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Social Workers, that is exactly what we do on a daily basis. We help others to embark on journeys of discovery, and in the process we always learn something more about ourselves.

Members Present offers a forum for all members to present their work in many different formats. On April 17th, Helen Schoenhals Hart showed a film, for which she had written English sub-titles, about Ernst Federn, who had been picked up by the Nazis three days after they occupied Austria. Federn, a Trotskyist, was sent first to Dachau, and then to Buchenwald. He survived the camps and told his story of life under terror to the filmmaker, Wilhelm Rosing, and his wife, Marita Barthel-Rosing. The film is a horrifying look at life in the camps. Ernst Federn is the son of Paul Federn, an analyst who joined the Vienna Psychoanalytic Association in 1903, and was a close confident of Freud’s. He emigrated to New York and was an influence in the development of psychoanalysis in the US.

How Does the Work of the IPA's COCAP Promote Practice of Child Psychoanalysis?

How Does the Work of the IPA’s COCAP Promote Practice of Child Psychoanalysis?

by Mali Mann MD

 

This article was reprinted in its entirety from the newsletter of the Association for Child Psychoanalysis/Spring /2016 and sent in by Mali Mann, MD.

As a child psychoanalyst/ psychiatrist and Chair of Northern America Committee on Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis of IPA, I constantly try to evaluate and compare the value of many types of child treatment modalities including child psychoanalysis. To me demonstrating the relevance and clinical indications of child analysis for the emotional disorders of childhood is a crucial goal for our profession. My hope is to create a sufficient appeal to individuals inside and outside of psychoanalytic organizations and child psychoanalytic training centers.

"Psychoanalysis and Social Injustice: A personal call to participate

“Psychoanalysis and Social Injustice: A personal call to participate”

by Mary Margaret McClure, DMH

 

For all of us who have chosen to work as psychotherapists and psychoanalysts in our effort to understand ourselves and the psyche, it is always a challenge keep in mind the social and cultural world that surrounds us all and is in us all. We hope to transform pain and suffering by creating a space for thinking, but in psychoanalysis we risk attending to the internal world in retreat from or as a way to cope with the confounding problems and the terrible pain in the world around us. In our dedication to psychoanalytic principles we must develop our capacity to consider social injustice, environmental issues, and other sources of suffering in our world.
