Psychoanalytic Treatment Incandescent in Winter 


CLINICAL WORK GROUP for psychoanalytic psychotherapists. This study group is offered to help participants think and work psychoanalytically to promote depth in their treatments regardless of frequency of meetings or level of disturbance or type of population of their patients. In the context of a collaborative and supportive environment, we will listen to case presentations with an eye to listening analytically, working with transference and countertransference and thinking practically about how to intervene to deepen the treatments. Mondays 12:50 - 2:15 pm, 3321 Sacramento Street, San Francisco. $45 per meeting; CE credit available. Beth Steinberg, (415) 441-5302
