Join NCSPP and PCPG for our 12th Annual Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Lecture as we host Dr. Carla Leone, who will be addressing how one thinks and works with couples through the lens of Self Psychology. She will ask the question: How does a couple promote a connection that helps each member of the couple consolidate and maintain a positive, vitalized sense of themselves as individuals within the couple?
Please join the Pre-Licensed Clinicians Committee in celebrating the work of Amber Trotter, Psy.D., on her paper titled, “Living Our Dreams or Dreaming a Nightmare: Reflections on an Increasingly Virtual Reality,” which received fort da’s 2018 Student Paper Award. Amber will present her paper, and a discussion facilitated by Brian Kuennemeier, Psy.D., will follow.
NCSPP’s Pre-licensed Clinicians Committee invites you to the 22nd 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 Dr. Karim Dajani, an immigrant psychoanalyst and instructor at SFCP. Dr. Dajani is deeply interested in the relationship between the individual and the collective.
This course focuses on the use of self — both psychologically and socioculturally. It frames supervision as a mutual endeavor between two socioculturally located, and therefore conditioned, participants that impact one another and the supervisee’s work, both consciously and unconsciously. Every human relationship contains the possibility of shame, envy, competition, negation, and conscious and unconscious power dynamics. These feelings and dynamics surface in the transference-countertransference within the supervisee’s work as a therapist and between the supervisory dyad or group. The use of self-inquiry, compassion, and cultural humility in examining these patterns is demonstrated and explored in this seminar-style course.
This course offers an in-depth empirical perspective on technology-mediated therapy. It is designed to help clinicians work more effectively with clients using technology, as well as to better understand the limitations of technology-mediated therapy, the nature of Presence, and the significance of embodied relating. The gains and losses of technologically mediated treatment will be assessed via clinical experience and current research, including in fields outside of psychoanalytic psychotherapy, such as computer/human interaction and neuroscience. Sociopolitical factors will also be considered.
