At the end of January PAPPTP sponsored a community meeting of PAPPTP trainees past and present to discuss practice building issues.

The Practice Building Workshop

Approximately 30 current and past PAPPTP trainees gathered for a delicious potluck lunch followed by introductions. The various PAPPTP groups expressed how nice it was to get acquainted and feel part of a larger group. This was the first exercise in networking.

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.

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.

WHAT HAS BEEN DONE SO FAR:

Message from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees

Message from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees

by Zach Cowan

The autumn of 2013 has been a very active time on the financial and budget front for the Board of Trustees.

We received and discussed our FY 2011 and FY 2012 audit. Although the audit did not indicate serious problems, it did indicate several systemic accounting issues that need to be addressed in order for us all to have a clear understanding of the organization’s fiscal condition. The Board has initiated a plan to address these problems and to revamp our accounting and bookkeeping systems so that they provide the members and the Board with accurate and transparent financial information. I expect that changes to these systems will be completed during the first half of 2014.

President's Message

President’s Message

by Robin Deutsch, Ph.D.

Welcome to 2014! I hope each of you had a restful and enjoyable holiday season.

As you will be reading in the letter from Zach Cowan, Chair of SFCP’s Board of Trustees, finances and budgetary issues have featured prominently in Board discussions. This is so, too, in the Management Team. Through the Fall, the Management Team has worked diligently on developing several operational policies, consistent with the BOT’s direction in financial and budgetary policies.

Beginning with the 2014-15 budget, there will be a yearly cost of living increase for each of our educational programs. In addition, everyone who attends meetings or educational problems must pay the established fee with the exception of presenters, discussants, and faculty who are teaching on-going programs. Students or community members who volunteer to staff our one-day programs are also exempt from payment of program fees.

An Introduction to Claudio Laks Eizirik, M.D. (Part III)

An Introduction to Claudio Laks Eizirik, M.D. (Part III)
In their own words: Claudio Eizirik, Madeleine Baranger, and WIlly Baranger
by Eric Glassgold, M.D., Visiting Professor Program Co-Chair

In the 1930‘s and 1940s, a wave of German, Austrian and Eastern European immigrants arrived in both North and South America. But in the 1950's and 1960's only South America experienced a "British Invasion.” In response to this British influence, South American analysts began to assimilate Kleinian perspectives. South American analysts also grappled with psychoanalytic influences from France and Southern Europe, especially Lacan's.

Says' Who?: Evidence, Fact, Belief in Clinical Psychoanalysis

Says’ Who? : Evidence, Fact, Belief in Clinical Psychoanalysis

by Mitchell Wilson, M.D.

 

SFCP, along with PINC, hosted a conference on October 19 and 20 that engaged the question of the nature of clinical evidence. This conference was sponsored by the IPA’s Committee on Clinical Research. We had over 50 people on Saturday and about 30 on Sunday. Most felt this conference was unusual and exciting because it dealt with an issue that is rarely discussed explicitly The quality of audience participation was especially high. Apropos of the title of the conference, “Says Who? ”, we hoped to minimize the usual issues of authority that often dominate large proceedings of this kind.
