ESTRANGED FROM ONESELF:
Negation Trauma and a Fiction Shaped by the Setting
RUPTURE: Pain and Possibility
This introductory event to the year-long San Francisco and East Bay intensive study groups (ISG) will explore ways to work with patients on the experience of Rupture, as it presents itself in the individual psyche, attachment relationships, interpersonal dynamics, and the larger sociopolitical context right now.
2020 WRITING AWARD PAPER PRESENTATION
Please join the Pre-Licensed Clinicians Committee in celebrating the work of Tara Bredesen, ASW, on her paper titled "Slipping into Self Disclosure: A Mixed-Race Negotiation with Sameness and Difference," which received fort da’s 2019 Annual Writing Award. (The paper was published in the Fall 2020 issue.) Tara will present her paper, and a discussion facilitated by Priscille Schwarcz-Besson, Ph.D., will follow.
FACING CLASS IN THE ANALYTIC FIELD
This course explores the class position of psychotherapists. We will examine socioeconomic and historical forces structuring our profession, from who we treat to how we think. As individual therapists and professional organizations endeavor to respond to urgent calls to address issues of diversity and social justice, we will argue that only by understanding structural dimensions of inequality and oppression can we respond effectively. A lecture will be followed by clinically focused small groups.
33rd ANNUAL EVENT AND LECTURE
RACIAL MELANCHOLIA, RACIAL DISSOCIATION:
A Day with David Eng, Ph.D.
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.
USING KETAMINE IN
Ketamine is a fascinating medicine with rapid-acting antidepressant effects and visionary properties. The goal of this class is to help psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapists identify which patients might benefit from a referral for adjunctive ketamine treatment, and to evaluate whether they might want to work with ketamine lozenges in their clinical practices, which is possible using a triadic treatment model (patient, psychotherapist, prescriber).
A "MIRROR THAT SEES":
Seeing and Being Seen Remotely in a Time of Pandemic
This course applies extant offerings from analysts who have helped us consider how to adapt to virtual practice “virtually” overnight in response to COVID-19. A brief review of common and crucial considerations for providing technologically mediated sessions during the pandemic will set the ground for discussion.
12th ANNUAL PSYCHOANALYTIC COUPLE PSYCHOTHERAPY EVENT
Promoting Self-Object Experience Between Partners: The Application of Self Psychology and Related Theories to Couple Psychotherapy
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?
32nd ANNUAL EVENT AND LECTURE
PLUGGING THE SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE:
A Day with Kirkland Vaughans, Ph.D.
This presentation is designed to describe the multiple factors in the marginalization of Black youth, including a failure in society’s mentalization of Black boys, a phenomenon most often reflected in the denial of their developmental period of “boyhood.” Thus, rather than an image of Black boys as vulnerable and at risk, a mentalized social image of what has been described as “a denigrated self-image” is perpetuated. The research documenting the need for this presentation grew out of “The Brotherman Study,” a project that interviewed 40 lower- to upper-middle-class Black boys and their parents to give credence to their voices and individual needs. This course is designed for all mental health professionals, from beginning to advanced levels. It is geared towards clinicians who wish to further their knowledge and expand their skill base in psychodynamic clinical work with Black boys.
BACK INTO THE OCEAN:
Music, Identification, and the Oceanic Feeling
What might the oceanic feeling have to do with music? One answer is that Freud claimed to feel neither of them, a biographical detail that is often attributed to his anxiety about undifferentiation, a fear of sameness, literal homophobia. This program resumes a Freudian voyage potentiated by his sea-change theory of sexuality using contemporary cultural objects including William Finnegan’s surfing memoir, Barbarian Days; John Luther Adams’ environmentalist composition for orchestra, “Become Ocean”; and Frank Ocean’s Blonde trilogy to explore and contrast the erotics of identification (based on shared experience) with sexual complementarity (based on difference) through the work of Adam Phillips, Harold Boris, Leo Bersani, and Jean Laplanche.
