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.

The Book Club Project

The Curriculum Committee is introducing a new venue for presenting our members’ written work. Our aim is to create a convivial format whereby members and attendees can meet to discuss a piece of writing in a group of 12-15 people.

We encourage newly-minted members to present their graduating papers to the public through this forum. We encourage all other members to consider using the Book Club Project as a venue for presenting their written work. Karim Dajani and Deborah Weisinger will kick off the effort by presenting their graduating papers in March of this year.

Re: Graduation Paper Presentations
Date: Fall 2015

Dear SFCP Community,

The curriculum committee is working on establishing a process that enables newly minted members to present their graduation papers. We wanted to share some of our deliberations to inform and solicit ideas for consideration as we work on finalizing a structure.

We discussed a twofold aim for this project. The first is concrete — establish a reliable process and venue for graduating members to present their final papers. The second is cultural — encourage more involvement with each other’s ideas and interests. Formalizing a process that welcomes graduating candidates to disclose aspects of their thinking, work and identity is likely to affect our culture in positive ways; at the very least it will increase familiarity and involvement with one another’s work and thinking.

By now, we have all had our fill of turkey and are preparing for the next series of holidays: Chanukah, Christmas and New Years. This year, as all the years, flew by quickly. This fall we had had a full plate (in keeping with the metaphor of Thanksgiving) of parties and programs; there’s much more to come next year when we celebrate 75 years of SFPI and SFCP with a grand gathering of all of our members at a location to be determined.

One of our new programs this year is Members Present. It is a forum for presenting work of our members that includes all manner of clinical, intellectual and experiential work; either a work completed or in progress. It is presented in an informal way so that there is lots of conversation between presenter and audience.
