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.

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.
