SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP), a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing knowledge and service through psychoanalysis will celebrate its 75-year anniversary on October 7th at the San Francisco InterContinental Hotel.
The theme of the evening will be the Past, Present and Future of Psychoanalysis in the Bay Area. Since its formation, SFCP has provided educational and career enhancing programming to over 150,000 people. It has trained thousands of clinicians who provide critical services in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area. Our membership of over 500 practicing analysts, candidates, and community members, provides programs and resources for underserved communities, while advancing psychoanalytic knowledge.
"Through WWII, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, the LGBT rights movement, the AIDS crisis, and earthquakes, fires, droughts and World Series Championships, the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis has been here in helping to unlock unconscious motivations for human behavior, both in our patients and society," said Honorary Chair, Harriet Wolfe, MD, Past President of SFCP and current President of the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA). "We are hopeful the next 75 years will lead to a greater understanding of the human condition."
Dr. Michael Krasny will be the keynote speaker. He hosts the award-winning KQED program Forum, a news and public affairs program that concentrates on the arts, culture, health, business, and technology, and is one of the nation's most popular public radio talk shows. During the past three decades, Dr. Krasny has interviewed many of the world's leading newsmakers and cultural icons, and his work has been recognized with numerous awards for broadcast journalism. In these challenging political and environmental times, Dr. Krasny will offer some much needed humor which is so evident in his new book "Let There Be Laughter."
The Anniversary Gala will be held at the InterContinental Hotel, SF. Festivities include reception, followed by dinner, music and dancing. To become a sponsor, or to learn more about attending the event, please visit www.sf-cp.org, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
