San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP), San Francisco

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.

Workshop
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP), San Francisco

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.
