Join the PLC and Dr. Diane Borden for a screening and discussion of the 2014 film Clouds of Sils Maria, a French-German-Swiss co-production set in Sils Maria, Switzerland, starring Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, and Chloë Grace Moretz. Following the screening, Dr. Borden will discuss the film’s themes through a psychoanalytic and depth orientation, including aging and the acceptance of life changes, the impact of technology on human relationships, merging and separation of identity, and transformative retreat in the sublime and in the setting of the Swiss Alps.
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?

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.
