San Francisco/East Bay Intensive Study Group Committee

Nancy Drooker, Ph.D.

The San Francisco/East Bay Intensive Study Group had yet another exciting, invigorating year. This past May marked the completion of a successful year-long course “playing” in the field of sexuality and gender in psychoanalysis. The Introductory Event was a stimulating “revisioning” of gender with Ken Corbett and Donna Bassin, a powerful documentary — “No Dumb Questions” — by Melissa Regan, and a rich group conversation.

The upcoming year-long course reflects yet another turn in the long and winding road of learning about psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. “Hidden Figures in a Thicket: Encountering the Unconscious in Clinical Practice” will be delving deeply into the folds, forms, and movements of the unconscious and the clinician's efforts to engage with unconscious communication. Believing strongly in the central importance of the unconscious in our work, our intention in offering this course is to provide a rich opportunity to study and, as a result, sharpen our tools for making contact with the unconscious in ourselves and those we work with.

The ISG committee is trying something new for 2007-08 by offering a mid-year event instead of an introductory one. We are delighted that Ruth Stein will be coming to San Francisco to present her current thinking on the unconscious experience. We are also delighted that Peter Goldberg will be the discussant. We hope many people will join us for “A Deep Well — Ruth Stein on the Feel of Unconscious Experience” on February 23, 2008.

The ISG committee is an amazing volunteer group dedicated to rigorous and creative thinking, to making a contribution to the community, and to having fun together. In addition to the hard working co-Chair — Jane Kenner from PINC — the committee is fortunate to have as members Amy Bandera, Susanne Chassay, Genie Dvorak, Boukje Eerkens, Eric Essman, Dora Honigstein, and Emily Seidel. These exceptional individuals generate a vibrant synergy for which NCSPP is most appreciative.
