South Bay Psychotherapy Forums 2013 - 2014

 South Bay Psychotherapy Forums 2012 - 2013

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.

Attendees gain:

  • 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.
