SFCP Videos on PEP-Web

As many of you are aware, Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing has a new online video streaming platform. During my time here at the SFCP Library, numerous SFCP members have made the good suggestion that we upload SFCP’s rich audiovisual content to a streaming web platform. Until now, technical and financial challenges have prevented us from hosting and streaming our own video collection, so the ability of PEP-Web to host, stream, not to mention transcribe and distribute our audiovisual holdings to a broad audience, is a tremendous opportunity. Over the past two months, Assistant Librarian Eric Rosen and I have been working with several SFCP members and PEP administrators to post three videos on PEP-Web’s platform.

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.

President's Message

President’s Message

by Robin Deutsch, PhD


As many may know by now, Harriet Wolfe has been elected APsaA’s next President-elect. She received 71.3% of the vote, while Richard Lightbody, the other candidate for President-elect, received 28.7%.

It is a very generous act to give of one’s precious time to help our organizations. Whichever psychoanalytic camp one belongs to, Harriet and Richard should be thanked for their willingness to contribute time, energy, and thoughtfulness for our profession’s benefit. Speaking for myself, having APsaA’s new President-elect have so much experience evolving governance structures of psychoanalytic organizations can only be beneficial to APsaA.

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.
