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 concerns and uncertainty about the Coronavirus and out of an abundance of caution, NCSPP has made the decision to suspend all in-person courses/events through Dec 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.
In preparation for the Annual Lecture with David L. Eng, PhD, a reading group for community mental health clinicians will discuss the Racial Melancholia article and how it applies to their work and thinking.
For our 2020 lecture (rescheduled from this past spring), David Eng will lead a discussion based on the research and theory he developed with Shinhee Han, LCSW, and presented in their 2019 book, Racial Melancholia, Racial Dissociation: On the Social and Psychic Lives of Asian Americans.
Please join us as we deepen our understanding of racialized experience in our practices, profession and our nation.
The workshop will scaffold a clinical supervisor’s self-reflection and learning about culturally centered clinical practices and ways to explore salient sociocultural issues with supervisees. It will investigate a contemporary psychoanalytic perspective and use indigenous and cultural narratives to invite supervisees’ own cultural history, personal identities, and social contexts into the supervisory space.
Join the PLC, along with guest speakers Molly Merson, LMFT, and Stephanie King, Psy.D., for a discussion of the 1991 classic Thelma and Louise, starring Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon. Directed by Ridley Scott and written by Callie Khouri, this film follows the journey of two women defying patriarchal oppression and surviving in an unjust world. Attendees are asked to watch the film before the event, where our speakers will lead a discussion of the film’s themes through a psychoanalytic lens.
