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.
