As we begin another program year, I would like to introduce myself as the new president of DSPP. I am a licensed psychologist and practice in uptown. I recently completed the PostgraduateProgram in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and hope to pursue analytic training in the near future. As my personal study of psychoanalysis has deepened, so has my passion for the material and work with my patients. I am eager to share this enthusiasm and hope to continue to strengthen our already rich psychoanalytic community in Dallas.
Our theme for this year is "Neurobiological and Psychoanalytic Approaches to Regulation." This theme will be explored in the context of regulating one's presence in the therapeutic dyad, conscious and unconscious communication, affect, and self-esteem. We are fortunate to have Dr. Allan Schore present at our fall workshop. As I mentioned, we will be co-hosting this event with the Dallas Psychological Association. This collaboration has been helpful in securing such a prominent speaker and will also be a good opportunity for us to connect with the broader psychology community in Dallas.I am also excited to share that Drs. Glen Gabbard and Holly Crisp will be presenting at our spring workshop.
I am grateful to my mentors, colleagues, and supervisor for their guidance and help in facilitating this year's programming. I would also like to thank our executive committee members - Scott Hickman, Berit Johnson, Jason Berman, Christy Tucker, Scott Nelson, Zane Dodd, Amanda Moates, Anna Brandon, Alicia Coleman, Denise Humphrey, Noelle McDonald, Stephanie Swales, Angelica Tratter, Ken Trevino,Estee Marchesani, and Natalie Nichols-Jones. Please feel free to approach any of us with suggestions, questions, and potential interest in participating on the EC in the future.
I would like to thank the Dallas Psychological Association, particularly Alex Foxwell and Kim Roaten, for collaborating with us on our upcoming fall workshop. I am also pleased to share that the Dallas Psychoanalytic Center will continue to sponsor this year's events.
Monthly meetings will begin at 7pm. Drinks and snacks will be served from 7-7:30pm, and the presentation will be held from 7:30-9pm. These meetings will take place at 12700 Preston Road, Room 270, Dallas, 75230
