Upcoming Courses & Events
This event will consider how analytic practice can be affected by thinking about infants and children, asking how (and whether) we can talk about babies and patients in the same breath. Video illustrations will be included, and case material will be considered. The presentation will bring together what remains vital in the classical psychoanalytic traditions with the emerging Intersubjectivist-Relational sensibility, including new findings in the areas of attachment, infant-parent interaction research, developmental neuroscience, trauma, and the like.
Join the PLC and Dr. Mali Mann for a screening and discussion of the 2017 Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film, The Salesman, which follows an Iranian couple whose lives are thrown into turmoil by an act of sexual violence. Throughout the aftermath, themes of compassion and revenge intersect. Persian refreshments will be offered.
Psychoanalytic psychology both pathologizes and remains open-minded about the uses of technology. Patients’ use of technology as a form of communication in their worlds — as well as a way of showing/telling the therapist aspects of their lives — is now commonplace as technology rapidly continues to impact society and therapeutic spaces. This course will reconsider theory and technique regarding the analytic frame in a technologically saturated world.
NCSPP’s Pre-licensed Clinicians Committee invites you to the 22nd in a series of conversations with senior clinicians in the field of depth psychology. Join your colleagues for a stimulating evening of food, wine, and conversation with clinical psychologist, Mahima Muralidharan, who will discuss professional development and her work as an organizational consultant using a psychoanalytic and sociocultural framework.
