NCSPP is committed to inclusion, antiracism and anti-oppression. Police brutality and other systematized abuses are unacceptable. Our organization is committed to calling out, recognizing and OPENLY condemning all violence against Black and Brown people. We are also committed to not turning away from the reality of White supremacy, the continuous trauma that has been enacted, and the hold it has had on this nation for hundreds of years. Neutrality is not a viable option. We, as a board and organization, stand firmly in our belief that Black lives matter and Black voices matter.
The Pre-licensed Clinician Members Committee at NCSPP invites you to our Virtual Spring Happy Hour. The PLC is a group of early-career therapists and graduate students. This happy hour is a great opportunity to grab your favorite beverage, unwind after your day, meet new students and therapists, discuss career interests and internships, and learn more about psychoanalytic ideas.
Feeling cooped-up and wanting to explore the outdoors with other Community Mental Health clinicians? The NCSPP Community Mental Health committee is hosting a hike to Tilden Park in the East Bay! Join us for an accessible hike around the area, and stay to feed the farm animals. Friends, partners, and children are welcome.
