Pre-Licensed Clinicians Committee

Catherine Sancimino, M.A.

The renamed Pre-Licensed Clinicians Committee has maintained its commitment to creating opportunities for community building and professional development for pre-licensed clinicians interested in psychoanalytic theory. Over the past two years, we have developed a series of programs that have quickly become lively traditions for the student membership of NCSPP. The student response to professional development programs and social gatherings has been enthusiastic, clearly demonstrating the need for continued outreach to training clinicians. Since offering increased programs designed for developing clinicians, student membership has increased. NCSPP has been able to offer its members a much-needed anchor as they make the potentially shaky transition from student to licensed professional. We hope to continue providing a secure attachment to students as they travel through graduate school and internship into careers as mental health professionals.

Our professional and social gatherings are aimed at providing venues for new professionals to meet peers interested in psychoanalytic theory and practice. The Pre-Licensed Clinicians Committee programs have focused on learning through analytic theory as well as identifying the practical applications of theory in practice. Our twice-yearly Salons invite a senior clinician to engage in an interview with an audience of training clinicians. The most recent Salon featured esteemed author Nancy McWilliams, Ph.D., discussing her personal journey as a psychoanalytic psychologist and answering questions about her experiences. For our twice-yearly Movie Nights, we show a film and discuss personality structure and dynamics between characters from a psychoanalytic perspective. Our yearly outreach events at local graduate schools are targeted at the specific needs of students at each school and include free programs planned at Alliant International University, the California Institute of Integral Studies, John F. Kennedy University, and the Wright Institute. We also host a Happy Hour and a Training Year Kickoff Picnic to encourage social networking between training and licensed clinicians.
