Call for Session for 2020 UC NCP IPC Meeting

Dear UC/NCP IPC Members,

We have posted the Call for Sessions for the 2020 Annual University of California / New Center for Psychoanalysis Interdisciplinary Psychoanalytic Consortium meetings. The meeting 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

We invite session proposals from both academics and clinicians on this year’s topic.  As always, our sessions are not presentations; rather, they are structured like a graduate seminar or reading group.  Everyone in attendance reads one or two short texts, then after a brief introduction by the facilitators, the rest of the session is dedicated to a discussion of the texts.  For more information on session proposals, format, etc, please read the full call here.

The deadline for submission of proposals in February 20.  Don’t worry, the proposal process is simple, and should only take a few minutes!

Thanks, and see you all soon!

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.

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