Writing Workshops

Expanding Clinical Understanding through Writing

This workshop utilizes a psychoanalytic perspective to expand both personal and clinical writing. Writing in this manner deepens clinical understanding and draws the writer into unconscious realms. Participants will learn to write in a clinical essay form and share their writing with other group members. The small-group format of 6-8 members facilitates learning in a safe and confidential atmosphere to enhance the deepening of this unique and sensitive experience.

Harry Polkinhorn, Ph.D., is a psychoanalyst in private practice, faculty member, President of the Board at SDPC, and Professor Emeritus of English and Comparative Literature at SDSU; he is also author, editor, and translator of over 40 volumes whose works have been published worldwide.

Caroline de Pottél, Ph.D., is a psychoanalyst in private practice; training and supervising analyst at SDPC; and she has authored and presented numerous papers at conferences both nationally and internationally.
