"Reflections from Behind the Couch: Early, Middle, and Later Years

Psychoanalysis has famously been called the "impossible profession." This can stir fear in all of us, in terms of feeling comfortable, or even just adequate, in the face of ambivalence, paradox, madness even.

NPSI Clinical Café

At the free Clinical Café, an NPSI training analyst will present an excerpt from a clinical case, illustrating psychoanalytic thought and technique for those considering analytic training. Refreshments will be served. Join us for a morning of psychic and physical nourishment.
