Impulse Committee

Shlomit Gorin, M.A.

On the first of each month, Impulse is sent to over 1800 subscribers. NCSPP's electronic newsletter helps keep the Bay Area psychoanalytic community informed and engaged.

By compiling information on courses, programs, and presentations occurring each month, Appointment Book provides a single source for learning about different organizations' offerings.

Organizations continue to take advantage of Piece of Mind, a space for introducing programs, and Event Spotlight, a medium to highlight upcoming events.

A rotating staff of writers contributes to Potential Space, which was edited by Adam Blum until June 2015. Adam contributed his own piece on Stephen Sondheim's musicals and the experiences of being unresolved versus nowhere. Suzanne Stambaugh wrote about the development of responsible love and, in her final piece, on the “infinite divisibility” of intersubjective space. Jane Reingold wrote about death and mourning in Felix van Groeningen's The Broken Circle Breakdown; psychic emptiness and longing in Paweł Pawlikowski's Ida; and trauma, isolation, and potential space in Tommy Lee Jones's The Homesman. Lorrie Goldin wrote about the challenges of tolerating patients' intolerance; psychic and clinical ramifications of the subjunctive tense; loss and emptiness in the context of hoarding; and Kenneth Hardy's presentation on race and trauma in contemporary society. Our newest writer, Alexandra Guhde, wrote about how metaphors carry within them potential for experience and ability to astonish. For Potential Space and From the Editor, I wrote on various topics, including ambivalence in Yuri Olesha's Envy, authenticity, makeover culture, and satire.

Psychoanalysis in the News, contributed by Ripple Patel, compiles headlines and links to interesting, relevant pieces in myriad online sources.

President's Remarks and NCSPP's Corner offer ways of learning about what NCSPP is up to and of staying connected to the organization.

There are two people who, behind the scenes, contribute much time and energy to ensuring a smooth production process and high-quality content. Susan Lake, our new Managing Editor, keeps track of the big picture while attending closely to details.
