President's Report

Mahima Muralidharan, Ph.D.

NCSPP has had a terrific year so far. We have had several productive discussions this year about our vision, organizational structure and new outreach and programming initiatives. The launch of our new website after months of hard work and meticulous planning marked an important milestone for NCSPP. In addition to providing our members with several professional opportunities this year, we have remained focused on the task of building community. NCSPP continues to thrive because of the countless hours of tireless work by our thoughtful and creative board and committee members. We are fortunate to have the support of such a talented and conscientious crew.

This year we have remained focused on building a stronger alliance between the board, the executive committee, and our committee members. As we continue to think about being more inclusive and celebrating our diversity, several important questions remain, to name a few: What is our role in advocating for a more inclusive psychoanalytic community? What is our relationship to power and authority as an organization? How do we define diversity? What is our perception of how diverse we are? We will continue to ponder these questions in the coming years.

We have had an exciting and challenging year in terms of our programming and outreach efforts. The Education Committee offered several successful courses. The ISG Committee offered a highly successful yearlong sequence on “The Therapist's Humanity in Clinical Work.” In collaboration with PINC and Access, NCSPP's Community Mental Health Committee continues to co-host Reflective Spaces/Material Places — a space for discussion and dialogue about the deeply moving, cutting-edge work happening in community mental health settings. This initiative has propelled us with a momentum that is quite infectious and serves as a powerful model for community building. The Program Committee experienced a year of transition. Despite the unexpected cancellation of this year's Annual Event, the committee moved forward and offered a highly successful scientific meeting. They are gearing up for the much-awaited Annual Couples Event.

The outreach division has a big responsibility in terms of assessing and responding to the needs of our membership.
