Child Colloquium News Update

Child Colloquium News Update

by Sarah Stadler, MD, Chair, Child Colloquium Committee


The Child Colloquium Series just finished another successful year with a well received presentation by Beatrice Beebe, including a somewhat frantic search for a new venue when we discovered that her talk sadly conflicted with the memorial for Bob Wallerstein. Good friends in high places were able to connect us with CPMC, and over 70 attendees were able to participate in Beebe’s dynamic presentation on infant research and its connection to adult treatment.

Our other four programs for 2014-2015 included the following:

“The Boy Who Didn’t Know He was Hurting Himself”
Mali Mann, presenter, and H. Spencer Bloch, discussant

Variations of the Eitington Training Model

Variations of the Eitington Training Model

by Bill Glover, PhD, Chair, Psychoanalytic Education Division


Roundtable contribution to an on-line IPA Debate begun on April 2.
The full debate can be found at http://www.ipa.org.uk/en/Debates/Eitingon_model.aspx

My contribution follows a thread begun in the debates on paternal function and on evaluation that preceded this one. I consider evaluation a manifestation of paternal function in psychoanalytic training, working to separate the candidate from his or her analyst and supervisors in way analogous to how the father applying his law separates the child from the mother.

Community Membership Update

Community Membership Update

By German Cheung, PsyD , Chair, Community Membership Committee


On behalf of the Community Membership Committee, I want to thank those of you who took the time to respond to our survey and provided your honest feedback. It was especially encouraging to know that you do consider SFCP your professional home. Your careful assessment of what our membership has been lacking was helpful for us to gauge how our committee would steer ourselves to serve you.

Change is coming.
