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.

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

SFCP Psychoanalytic Education Division
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

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.

Opera on the Couch: The Flying Dutchman

Opera on the Couch: The Flying Dutchman

by Milton Schaefer, Ph.D., Opera on the Couch, Chair

 

Drs. Eileen Keller and Lee Rather were discussants for the Opera-on-the-Couch discussion of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman immediately following the November 3 performance at the San Francisco Opera. Their presentations led to a lively back and forth, which was moderated by Dr. Steve Goldberg, between the 80 or more participants.
