It is with great sadness I report that our teacher, supervisor, mentor, colleague and friend Joseph Afterman, MD, died on the morning of February 7, 2014.

Dr. Afterman was born in Chicago on November 28, 1925. He served in the navy as a communications officer in the Pacific during World War II, shipped out from San Francisco, and was determined to return here, which he did after graduating from medical school at the University of Chicago, Class of 1951. He interned at Mt. Zion, did a residency at Menlo Park VA hospital and at Mt Zion, and then did his adult and child analytic training at SFPI. He was on the staff at Mt. Zion, where he taught classes and supervised residents until the hospital closed. In addition to his work at Mt. Zion, he taught and supervised in child analysis at SFPI until his retirement.

News from the Child Analysis Congress: January 13 &14, 2014, Waldorf Astoria, New York City

News from the Child Analysis Congress
January 13 &14, 2014, Waldorf Astoria, New York City

by Mali Mann, MD, Chair of North American Committee of Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis (NA-COCAP)

 

As an attempt to follow up with the formation of the BOPS Subcommittee on an integrated Child/ Adolescent/ Adult Curriculum, the first child Congress was organized on Jan13-14 before the APsaA Winter meeting. Dr. Charles Park opened the conference on the afternoon of Jan13, discussing the mandate that was aimed at developing an integrated child/ adolescent/adult curriculum, which institutes affiliated with APsaA can use as a model for facilitating child and adolescent psychoanalytic training. Such an integrated curriculum helps candidates to train simultaneously in both child and adult analysis. It would promote the practice of child and adolescent psychoanalysis through candidates’ exposure to the value of child work.

Tribute for Calvin Settlage, MD

Tribute for Calvin Settlage, M.D.

by Steven Frankel, M.D. & Shahla Chehrazi, M.D.

It will be hard for us who were close to him to get used to a world that doesn't include Cal Settlage. Cal died on November 21, 2013 in a nursing home in Huntsville, Arkansas after a series of strokes. He was born on November 25, 1921 in Waukesha, Wisconsin. His early years are in ways epitomized by stories of accompanying his minister father when he preached at rural churches.

What, you might ask, was a prominent analyst, the previous head of the Child Analysis Division of the American Psychoanalytic Association, the Chairman of the Education Committee of the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Association (now the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis), author of multiple widely quoted articles published in prominent psychoanalytic journals, and sought after lecturer, doing in Huntsville Arkansas?
