“The richness of analytic training, warmth of ICP’s community, and the challenge for me to stretch and grow both professionally and personally were invaluable. I am excited to see the ICP community grow and flourish in Ventura County.”– Sona DeLurgio, Psy.D. LMFT, Co-Chair for the Ventura County Saturday Series
“I knew I wanted to work with my clients on a deeper level and increase my own understanding of the clinicians’ complex role in therapy. Extending the ICP community into Ventura County has proved successful in tying together businesses that tend to operate independently while creating a unique forum for discussion and education.”– Antonia Noble Ludwig, Psy.D., M.F.T., Co-Chair for the Ventura County Saturday Series
The Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis Saturday Series- Ventura County offers classes to both licensed and non-licensed mental health professionals.
The program is designed to assist students in understanding some of the key psychoanalytic processes as well as contemporary sensibilities in treatment.
Students will explore the psychoanalytic perspective on dreams, childhood trauma, Buddhism, diversity, and body and somatics, among many other topics. This material is presented through psychoanalytic articles, instructor lecture and group discussion.
