12:00 - 4:00
Spark Arts, San Francisco

Join the Pre-licensed Clinicians Committee and Dr. Cowan for a screening and discussion of Leave No Trace, an evocative, poignant film about the relationship between a Veteran and his newly adolescent daughter. The film explores the legacy of war trauma and the pressures this father and daughter face as they interact with Social Services, experience homelessness, and lose their protected and secluded world. Through a psychoanalytic lens, Dr. Cowan will discuss the film’s themes, the emotional development of this young girl, and filmmaker Debra Granik’s deep and sensitive vision.

Course
6:30 - 8:30 pm
First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco, San Francisco

This mini-course is an overview of theories and practice in psychoanalytic work within the context of race and multicultural issues. The course specifically focuses on transference and countertransference issues that arise in racial sameness and difference in therapeutic dyads. Analytic articles will be supplemented by inter-disciplinary scholarship from critical mixed-race theory and social justice perspectives.

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. 

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