Melissa Holub, Ph.D.
As you are reading this report, 2009 will be winding down, as will another chapter for NCSPP. I am so pleased to say that we've had a terrific year.
As I write, millions of people are Twittering and the media are giving attention to mass hysteria enacted at Town Halls across the country. The programs NCSPP has provided this year are particularly relevant to our times. We've offered programs on the interface of Internet technologies and analytic therapy, on hysteria and group psychology.
As NCSPP President, it's been a year of consolidation and refinement. My goal has been to take the last few years’ growth and changes to a place of new stability. I've greatly enjoyed the subtlety and (mostly) lack of drama. This effort at consolidation is beautifully expressed in our new brochure. Under the leadership of Jill Warburton, Program Division Chair, and with the keen help of all our programming Chairs, we are now able to offer our members a unified look at NCSPP's rich and diverse offerings. I think you'll be impressed with the wide scope and real relevance of our upcoming programs.
I'd like to include some additional NCSPP highlights, beginning, most appropriately, with this very journal. fort da has been ably led and staffed by Alan Kubler and a talented committee of readers, thinkers, and (I hear tell) folks with fine noses for good wine. This group took a very good local journal and has brought it, over the last seven years, to a new level. The quality of fort da is currently on par with some highly regarded national psychoanalytic journals. We are happy to be able to offer fort da for sale to non-members and are very pleased that fort da articles will be available through PEP online sometime in the near future. I want to thank Alan and the fort da committee for their vision and their commitment to NCSPP's mission of making the study of psychoanalytic psychology both accessible and exciting.
We had an outstanding education program this year, and we have some notable events to come. In early October we have a play: Love for Beginners: A Play, On and With, Words, by Gene Alexander, MFT, starring some of your very own colleagues! Later in the month senior couples’ therapist Mary Morgan, Ph.D., visits us from London's Tavistock Center.
