Becoming a Training Analyst/Supervising Analyst in 2016 and Beyond

SFCP, in anticipation of coming changes at APsaA and in concert with psychoanalytic education centers nationally, is taking a fresh look at the procedures for developing psychoanalysts who will analyze and supervise future candidates. To that end, community wide discussions will be taking place in the hopes of reaching a consensus about the kind(s) of writing and presenting requirements we want for our future TA/SAs.

Our 75th Anniversary

Our 75th Anniversary

by Meryl Botkin, PhD, Membership Committee Chair

 

In 2017 SFCP (formerly SFPI&S) will celebrate its 75th year of training, education and research in psychoanalysis. Our mission—to advance the vitality and enduring value of psychoanalysis in Northern California—is alive and well. We are training analysts, psychoanalytic psychotherapists, and, in addition, have a wide range of programs for mental health professionals and the general public.

Our 75th year is a time to honor all the analysts who established the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute and Society in the spring of 1942, and those throughout the decades who are responsible for creating and sustaining a vibrant psychoanalytic community. Our Gala Committee will be planning an event in September of 2017 so hold that open to come and celebrate our past and our future.

Please join us on Saturday, March 12, 2016, from 10:00am - 12:00pm in welcoming Lawrence Brown, PhD, from Boston, MA. He will present his paper, “The Capacity to Tell a Joke: Reflections from Work with Asperger’s Children.” This paper represents a thoughtful and entertaining look at the developmental achievement of humor as vehicle for contact with and treatment of a severely disturbed child with Asperger’s Syndrome. Word play and other forms of humor are used to facilitate the child’s capacity to move beyond the concrete, and to form symbols about an interpersonal situation.

Celebrating Ten Years of Poetry and Psychoanalysis

Saturday April 16, 2016 10:00am to 12:00pm

Our tradition has been to have one of our committee interview a visiting poet about her work. We will mark this ten year milestone with a role reversal, having an illustrious visiting poet, Carol Snow, interview three SFCP poet-analysts about their writing and its intersection with psychoanalysis.

Susan Kolodny, Forrest Hamer and Alice Jones will read poems and have a conversation about their work.
