Intensive Study Group Committee
Sharon Bass, Ph.D. and Eric Essman, M.A.
The Intensive Study Group Committee — Sharon Bass (co-Chair), Eric Essman (co-Chair), Brenda Bloomfield, Diane Borden, Alice Knutson, and Cynthia Sailers — is proud of its history of developing successful year-long programs and is still feeling the vigorous wind in our sails from the launch of the well-attended 2015-16 East Bay and San Francisco offering, “What Works: The Nature of Therapeutic Action.” With outstanding faculty, and students with a wide range of experience, the ISGs strive to meet the needs of the NCSPP community for a rich, didactic curriculum of classic and contemporary papers, wedded to experience-near treatment of difficult clinical issues.
Along with the yearlong programs, the committee is excited about annual or semi-annual day-long events. In March 2016, we're delighted to present an afternoon with American Conservatory Theater (ACT) Artistic Director Carey Perloff, discussing her memoir, Beautiful Chaos (2015). Compelling analogies between the potential space of dramatic productions and psychotherapeutic encounters, as well as Perloff's anecdotal accounts of just what it takes to manage a company of creatively “difficult” people, promise to generate a lively, informative program that should attract a wide and diverse audience. The committee thanks former member and Chair Ellen Klutznick for her efforts in organizing this program and for her years of dedicated service to the committee.
The ISG's 2016-17 yearlong offering is a work in progress, with surprises yet to come, but at the time of this writing, we expect it will deal with the clinical implications of technological transformations. If it's true, as some have claimed, that we live in a world fundamentally changed by social media and developments in medical technology related to body alteration and childbearing, for example, how do these changes affect those whom we treat? Basic questions of who we are as therapists and patients underlie the everyday experiential and technical challenges posed in the clinic.
