We are happy to offer our annual Early Career Case Conference to the San Francisco psychoanalytic community. Clinicians who have completed graduate school training and are pre-licensure or up to 5 years post licensure are invited to participate in this program. Led by seasoned clinicians who are graduate analysts, advanced PINC candidates, or analysts involved in PINC training, the Early Career Case Conference will focus on case presentations, clinical discussion and 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 know and network with other clinicians at similar stages of their careers. Group members will learn from peers as well as from experienced facilitators who work with varying clinical approaches and within different psychoanalytically oriented frameworks. The continuity of working in a group over many weeks offers members time to develop their voice, expand their thinking, and deepen their clinical work.

The case conference will integrate psychoanalytic thinking about key issues such as the impact of remote therapy and technology on the therapeutic relationship, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, and working with intersectionality of identities such as, but not limited to, race, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic context. Group members will each have the opportunity to present a case (usually for three weeks).

Each group is limited to 8 participants. We ask that you commit to attending all meetings (barring emergencies and unavoidable circumstances) so that an optimal work group can develop.

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

Continuing Education Units (CEU's) are available for a total of up to 36 CEU's for the course.
