The Sacramento Psychoanalytic Society, in association with the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California, is excited to offer a series of Early Career Case Conferences.
We extend this invitation to early career therapists of any mental health discipline who are pre-licensed or up to 5 years post-licensure. We welcome those who are interested in learning more about psychoanalytic theory and technique, experiencing the styles and approaches of experienced therapists and analysts, and building community with other clinicians at a similar stage in their careers.
The focus of each 12-week course is transference/countertransference. In addition, responsive to the sociopolitical context in which we live, the case conference will integrate psychoanalytic thinking about key issues such as: the impact of COVID-19 on individuals, families, and communities; the impact of remote therapy and technology on the therapeutic relationship; and the intersectionality of identities such as, but not limited to, race, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
Each course is limited to 8 participants. Participants can take both courses if they wish. We ask that participants commit to attending all meetings (barring emergencies and unavoidable circumstances) so that an optimal work group can develop. The continuity of working in a group over a number of weeks offers the members time to develop their capacity to think and expand their clinical abilities.
Several group members will have the opportunity to present a case over 3 sessions. Sharing one’s work is an act of vulnerability and trust. Group leaders and members strive to engender an environment of curiosity, listening to other perspectives, and mutual respect.
Continuing Education credit is available for a total of up to 18 CEs for each course.
Until appropriate safety measures can be in place, we are pleased to offer this case conference via Zoom. When we are able to meet in person, the meetings will take place in the facilitator’s Sacramento office.
Opening gathering on Feb 28.
