Peninsula/South Bay Education Committee

MJ Myatt, MFT

The Peninsula/South Bay Committee stayed on course in its endeavors to create a strong professional community to further analytic thinking and opportunities for growth. We built on our existing platform of programs and looked to new ideas in the pre-licensed area. In the process, we kept in mind the professional goals of our committee members which added to the enthusiasm and creativity in developing relevant programming.

It was another blockbuster year for the 2008-2009 Intensive Study Group (ISG). We presented “From Inspiration to Interpretation: Translating Influential Ideas into Meaningful Work.” This was a second year offering of readings and discussion of seminal analytic papers that were chosen and presented by Stephen Hartman, Annie Sweetnam, Angela Sowa, Julie Gerhardt and Ivria Spieler, Dennis Facchino, was our Integrative Facilitator. We had provocative and expansive discussions of analytic concepts, comparative schools, styles of work, and theories on analytic change. It was lively and challenging.

Our Salon Series once again hit its mark in offering edgy topics of interest to the analytic community as well as to others who are interested in overlapping ways of thinking about our world. We kicked off the election year in October at MJ Myatt's home with Steven Ducat, who discussed “Politics of Anxious Masculinity: From 9/11 to the Current Presidential Campaign.” In February, Ken Pound transported us into an operatic state of mind as he presented “Creativity and Madness at the Opera.” He was hosted by Alison Cabell in her Los Altos home. Dennis Facchino discussed “Siblings, the Unconscious Web in the Family Structure,” and was hosted by Tish Beyer in San Jose. As always, great food, wine and hanging out with colleagues and friends make these Friday evenings a wonderful professional event.

Terry McLarnan hosted an Adolescent Series at his agency, Center for Healthy Development, in Santa Clara. This year's series included “Just Say Anything: Building a Reflective Process in Adolescent Psychotherapy,” presented by Peter Carnochan, and “Identity, Sexuality and the Self in the Treatment of the Adolescent Patient,” by Brian Feldman.
