PED Graduation

PED Graduation

by Laurie Case, PhD, Chair, Curriculum Committee

 

On Saturday, May 17, our community gathered to celebrate the graduation of five analysts from SFCP's adult track. Those analysts were Leora Benioff, Jeanne Leary, Kyra Minninger, Sarah Lewis Stadler and Naomi Janowitz. The graduation speaker was Lee Grossman, who graciously agreed to step in for Barbara McSwain. (Happily, Barbara has agreed to speak next year). Dr. Grossman's presentation was full of humor, a send up of the plethora of ideological schisms that have characterized psychoanalysis from its beginning. But laughter aside, or perhaps along side, Dr. Grossman spoke of the way psychoanalysts may cling to theoretical conviction as a way of evading the anxieties inherent in our work—our fear of hurting our patients, our anxiety in the face of uncertainty, an uncertainty which he sees as inevitable and inevitably painful but ultimately crucial.

This year has flown by and has been a full one for PAPPTP. In addition to starting our fourth training class of nine, we have had our second Fellowship Year Program and two ongoing case conferences for the PAPPTP community. During the year we also sponsored three workshops for current and alumni PAPPTP members: one preceding the Visiting Professor with Eric Glassgold and Ric Almond; a workshop on Practice Development with Renee Spencer, Maureen Smith Ruffell and Mike Smith and a workshop on the Meanings of Money in clinical work with Mary Jane Otte and Ann Martini.

Professional Wills Conference
I want to call your attention to our upcoming Professional Wills Conference on March 29, 2014 at the Center from 9:30am - 1pm. Making a professional will is a difficult task we have to encounter in order to protect our patients when something unforeseen befalls us. We need to have in place someone to contact our patients and take over for us if need be.

At the end of January PAPPTP sponsored a community meeting of PAPPTP trainees past and present to discuss practice building issues.

The Practice Building Workshop

Approximately 30 current and past PAPPTP trainees gathered for a delicious potluck lunch followed by introductions. The various PAPPTP groups expressed how nice it was to get acquainted and feel part of a larger group. This was the first exercise in networking.
