As care in our community continues to be of utmost importance, particularly during this especially disrupted and unsettled surround and environment, NCSPP would like to offer resources that we believe are relevant to the clinical practitioners of our membership, and their patients. Please follow this link for further information with the understanding that information and guidelines will continue to develop and evolve. We will do our best to reflect the most current information available.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus concern, NCSPP has decided to suspend all in-person courses/events through June 2021. All events will be held via Zoom or other virtual platforms. All registrants will receive an email with the corresponding links upon registration.
We will continue to make decisions about our programs at appropriate times, with the health and well-being of participants and instructors in mind, and with the guidance and restrictions put in place by state and local health officials.
This course will discuss what makes treatment of dissociative disorders different from standard analytic work. We will look at how to work with the terror of our most traumatized patients and help them begin to create a sense of safety within.
This course explores the class position of psychotherapists. We will examine socioeconomic and historical forces structuring our profession, from who we treat to how we think. As individual therapists and professional organizations endeavor to respond to urgent calls to address issues of diversity and social justice, we will argue that only by understanding structural dimensions of inequality and oppression can we respond effectively. A lecture will be followed by clinically focused small groups.
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.
