This last weekend I had the opportunity to meet with a number of psychotherapy trainees and other interested members to discuss technology in clinical practice. This was a lively and interesting discussion about what is gained and what is lost with the introduction of iPhones, email, telephone and video sessions into analytic work. In another part of my life, I teach Law and Ethics to mental health professionals, and this is always a topic of great interest; most of my seminars involve a good deal of discussion about how technology is becoming so omnipresent in clinical work.

A protest on Martin Luther King’s birthday shut down the Bay Bridge and prompted a number of comments on Facebook and Twitter. Many of the comments unfavorably compared these protesters to Dr. King, and praised King for his peaceful approach. Most were critical of today's protesters for their disruption of traffic. One noted that his gentle, peaceful approach was the reason King was successful and revered as a leader of the civil rights movement.

Thanksgiving messages are often a list of those things we are thankful for, and this year is no different. I am thankful this year for the hard work of the SFCP Search Committee, who found our Executive Director. I am thankful for the daily work of our staff, both visible and behind the scenes, and all the usually thankless efforts of the members of SFCP who create, support and teach in our many programs. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate the dedication and hard work that goes into making SFCP a home for psychoanalysis.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

You are critical to our success. There are several exciting upcoming events that we want you to place on your calendars. All of them will require your time and willingness to participate.

One highlight on our calendar is the Black Psychoanalysts Speak event. This event is a wonderful opportunity for you to join a very important conversation regarding race and how it is or is not being addressed by Psychoanalysts.

However; this is just the beginning of the conversation…

What’s Your Brand?

As our search committee was interviewing candidates, one of them asked us “What’s your brand? Do you have an elevator speech?” That candidate (now our Executive Director Marian Banks-Nickleberry) stumped me then, and I remain a bit stumped today. I was recently interviewed by a TV reporter who asked me about SFCP. He wanted to know what we do. I fumbled around a bit, and finally settled on describing us as “an academic institution that trains mental health professionals the principles of psychoanalysis.” Wholly unsatisfied by this response, I found myself ask-ing the question: What is our brand?
