Announcement: 2020 UN-NCP IPC “Lake Arrowhead Meeting”

Dear UC/NCP IPC Members,

We are gearing up for our Annual University of California / New Center for Psychoanalysis Interdisciplinary Psychoanalytic Consortium meetings. They will be held on March 6-8, 2020 at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead, CA.

This year’s theme is:

The Imperiled Self: Explorations in the Psychic Life of Violence

The full conference description is available here, and the call for session proposals will be available in the coming days. Please consider submitting a proposal to the Program Committee to facilitate one of the sessions

Also, circulate this announcement widely, identifying anyone who you think might be interested in attending and participating in the Consortium.  I think the theme will establish a framework for discussion over the week-end that will be refreshing and restorative for everyone!

We will be posting the registration form for the conference this week, along with information on student stipends and paper prizes.  Please be sure to check It is very important for people to register as early as possible for the weekend! We rely on the registration money to help fund the conference, including the many early up-front costs. UC/NCP IPC, alas, has no reserve funds and depends on you.

Jeff Prager & Kevin Groark
Director/Co-Director, UC/NCP IPC
