Child Colloquia: Cutting the Silence: Impulsive Cutting in Adolescents

by Sharon Karp-Lewis, PsyD, LCSW

On November 9th 2013, Mary Brady, PhD treated us to a compelling presentation on the subject of cutting, focusing on impulsive cutting before it becomes ritualized. After her initial talk, there was discussion of case material provided by Dawn Smith, PhD. More than 40 clinicians attended Saturday morning to learn more about treating teens with the disturbing symptom of physically acting upon their body.

SFCP Psychoanalytic Education Division - Supervision Policies

Supervision Policies

by William Glover, Ph.D., Chair, Psychoanalytic Education Division

The Psychoanalytic Education Division has been reviewing Supervision Policies over the past year. In order to optimize the analytic training experience at SFCP, a policy was adopted in the fall of 2012 requiring weekly supervision of training cases until graduation. In recognition that individual circumstances warrant flexibility, the PED has been discussing revisions to the policy. This discussion has led us to articulate the educational philosophy guiding our supervision policies as well as take up the related issues of analytic process, immersion, and what constitutes a case that is creditable towards graduation.

SFCP Newsletter Biography

by Henry Massie, M.D.

A short time ago, the Board of Trustees of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis felt that it would be a good idea to introduce itself to the membership with brief biographies. It fell to me to be the first. I am an adult and child psychiatrist, one of the Community Members on the Board. In a way, I am a hybrid because I am an “almost analyst,” having finished all of my classes and a period of supervised control cases at the San Francisco Institute before veering away in the direction of research in about 1985.

The program “A Day With Claudio Eizirik,” on November 16th, gathered a lively, enthusiastic crowd. Below are the remarks made by Beth Steinberg, Ph.D, in response to some of Dr. Eizirik’s ideas about the position of psychoanalysis in the world and
their relationship to changes at SFCP.

The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis:
Facing the Challenges of the Interface with the Outside World in the Time of “Liquid Modernity”

Before turning the podium over to Catherine Mallouh, who will introduce Dr. Eizirik, I’d like to tell you what’s happening here at the Center, and I’d like to do so using some of Claudio’s own ideas to frame what I have to say.
