All SFCP members, candidates, community members and mental health professionals are welcome free of charge. Meetings take place on the second Monday of the month unless otherwise noted.

Program Title: A Personal View of the Theoretical Shifts at SFPI/CP: From the 1990s to the Present
Date: Monday, February 11, 2019
Time: 07:30pm - 09:30pm
Presenter: Jonathan Dunn, PhD
Discussant: Celeste Schneider, PhD
Moderator: Michael Levin, PsyD
Location: San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis
444 Natoma Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
Program Fee: Free

This talk and discussion are intended to appeal to anyone interested in psychoanalysis, irrespective of training context or professional community; our Center stagnates when we listen only to ourselves, so sincere, thoughtful input is welcomed from all perspectives. A separate but related paper titled: Personalizing Psychoanalysis: Notes on Psychoanalytic Theory, History, Inclusion, and Unity will be pre-circulated before the program, and it will include an addendum that addresses the specific content of the meeting.
