flyerPINC is happy to offer its first early career case conference via Zoom to the wider psychoanalytic community, in the Bay Area and beyond. Clinicians who have completed graduate school training and are pre-licensure or up to 5 years post licensure to invited to participate in this program led by experienced clinicians who are graduates of the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California. We will focus on case presentations, clinical discussion and professional community building. Readings may be assigned according to the interest of the participants and instructor.

The ECCC is an opportunity for participants to get to think and engage with other clinicians at a similar stage of their careers. Group members will learn from their peers as well as from experienced clinicians who work with varying clinical approaches and within different psychoanalytically oriented frameworks. The continuity of working in a group over a number of weeks offers the members time to develop their capacity to think and expand their clinical abilities.

Responsive to the socio-political context in which we live, the case conference will integrate psychoanalytic thinking about key issues such as, the impact of COVID-19 on individuals, families and communities, the impact of remote therapy and technology on the therapeutic relationship, and intersectionality of identities such as, but not limited to, race, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic status. The group is limited to 10 participants. We ask that you commit to attending all meetings (barring emergencies and unavoidable circumstances) so that an optimal work group can develop. Sharing one's work is an act of faith and trust. Group leaders and members work to engender an environment of curiosity, listening to other perspectives, and mutual respect. Continuing Education Credits (CE's) are available for a total of up to 36 credits for the course. This distance learning case conference supports clinicians to create a learning community regardless of their location, be it local to the SF Bay Area or farther afield.

Participants in the case conference automatically become Community Members at PINC, which offers many streaming programs. Community Membership offers multiple benefits: a regular newsletter, discounted or free admission to PINC lectures, events, Visiting Scholar programs, eligibility for our mentoring program, and belonging to a vibrant community of psychoanalytic innovators and forward thinking clinicians.

Please Note: This program tends to fill quickly. Be sure to secure your spot by registering soon.

Continuing Education Credit is available for a total of up to 36 credits for the course. Credit will be offered upon completion of each section.
