Join us in the spacious and vibrant outdoor patio at Lost & Found Beer Garden in Oakland for beer or kombucha on tap. This is a great opportunity to unwind after your day and start the Spring with colleagues.
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 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.
