Upcoming Courses & Events

Due to concerns and uncertainty about the Coronavirus and out of an abundance of caution, NCSPP has made the decision to temporarily discontinue all in-person gatherings for our courses, effective immediately. We will instead be exploring feasible digital means of continuing our current and scheduled programming where and when possible. Current participants and registrants for upcoming courses and events will be contacted by NCSPP with further information and options regarding their course or event of interest. We will reassess this decision and communicate our next steps on April 15th, 2020.

We will continue to make decisions about our programs at appropriate times and with the health and well-being of participants in our minds, as well as with the guidance and any restrictions potentially put in place by state and local health officials.

Salon | Social Event
7:00 - 9:00 pm
WestCoast Children's Clinic, East Bay

NCSPP’s Pre-licensed Clinicians Committee invites you to the 23rd 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 Drs. Lani Chow, Greg Clinton, Mahima Muralidharan, Regina Shields, and Diane Swirsky about the intentionally psychoanalytic and racially diverse consultation group they have formed. We will talk about the structure of their group and how it has enriched their clinical theory, conceptualization, and practices. 

Lecture | Event
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
The David Brower Center, East Bay

We are bombarded today by celebratory discourses of multiculturalism and diversity in the face of intensifying racial discord and violence. In our so-called colorblind age, we lack sufficient critical resources to analyze the social and psychic conditions that give rise to such contradictions. Equally important, we have few conceptual frameworks to understand their social and psychic effects on Asian Americans. This course will explore these various topics.

We are committed to the study of psychoanalytic psychology and to encourage its interest in Northern California's professional and general communities.

NCSPP’s varied array of learning opportunities; our journal fort da; our e-newsletter Impulse; and numerous special events and projects are all brought to you by scores of volunteers who work to support NCSPP’s mission. Our educational programs include continuing education credit for Psychologists, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers.
