Upcoming Courses & Events
Join us for drinks and appetizers as we head into another academic/professional year! This is a great chance to mingle with colleagues in various stages of their careers and to talk about classes, internships, professional life, or whatever strikes your fancy.
This workshop will present a contemporary psychoanalytic perspective for working with gay and queer-identified men in psychotherapy. The influence of culture on gender and sexual identity development will be highlighted, along with a critique of an essentialist perspective inherent in traditional psychoanalytic theory. Recent psychoanalytic contributions addressing gay and queer male experiences will also be reviewed, with an emphasis on developmental milestones.
Join the PLC and Forrest Hamer for a screening and discussion of the Oscar-winning film, Moonlight, which follows the childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood of an African-American male as he develops his identity and sexuality. Following the movie screening, psychoanalyst and award-winning poet, Forrest Hamer, will discuss the film. Popcorn will be served.
Mental health professionals are required to take 4-6 hours of continuing education in law and ethics in order to renew their licenses. Too often these programs focus on risk management and impose fear-based rules for practice. This program will apply a clinical perspective to legal and ethical practice and begin by reviewing a model for legal and ethical decision making based on the broad ethical principles that form the basis for most professional ethics codes.
NCSPP members are invited to celebrate the end of another wonderful year of programs, classes, and events by attending our Annual Holiday Party. Get a chance to mingle with new and old NCSPP friends and toast with us in style. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
We send an especially warm welcome to our advanced practice clinicians. As analytic therapists of all generations gather together in celebration, this event can help remind each other of our commitment to growth, vitality, and thought.
