While the clinical encounter itself can be profoundly intimate and isolating, work with children always requires at a minimum working with parents, and often involves work with other clinicians.  This year's series offers a number of presentations which explore this.

These events are offered free of charge through the generous support of SFCP and the Sophia Mirviss Fund. Continuing Education Credit is available for a fee paid to SFCP to cover administration costs.

The Child Analytic Program of SFCP welcomes you to a series of presentations demonstrating the scope of intensive work with children. These events offer an opportunity to hear a range of theoretical perspectives and clinical approaches.  This year we attempted to focus the series around the topic of collaboration although the event selection also reflects what we had timely opportunities to present.  We hope you will attend several events and become part of the ongoing discussion, contributing to enriching clinical work and theoretical understanding.
