Edit Markoczy, PsyD, Sheena Craig, MFT and Sydney Tan, PsyD, Co-Chairs
The Bay Area Psychotherapy Forums are monthly case conferences open to students and clinicians at all levels of experience interested in improving their ability to work psychoanalytically. Each month a psychotherapist presents a therapy case of particular interest or concern. A different analyst is invited to each forum to discuss how they listen to the case material, fostering a lively discussion with the audience. The clinician group that attends builds a networking base while welcoming new colleagues.
- Psychodynamic case formulation skills
- Exposure to different theories for conceptualizing psychopathology
- Improved abilities in listening for transference/countertransferene themes
- Approaches for therapeutic action and technique
The forum is free for SFCP members, candidates and community members. If you are not a current community member of SFCP you are very welcome to come and check out the forum. If you find that you wish to attend on a more regular basis, we ask that you consider becoming a member. Click the following links to learn more about Community Membership.
