SFCP Statements and Policies

SFCP’s Commitment to Freedom of Expression and Condemnation of Hate Speech
SFCP is a non-profit institution that recognizes the rights of its members and faculty to free speech in their private lives and on social media platforms; however such private communications are neither sponsored nor endorsed by SFCP. We condemn hate speech of any kind.

Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity Statement
The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP) admits persons of any race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, religion, gender identification, sexual orientation, or disability.  SFCP does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, religion, gender identification, sexual orientation, or persons with disabilities in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and other programs administered by the Center.  All persons are accorded equal access to the rights, privileges, and activities associated with SFCP programs.  

Accommodation of Persons with Disabilities
The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP) is committed to providing full and equal enjoyment of its services, facilities, privileges, and advantages to individuals with disabilities. SFCP will make accommodations to allow individuals to participate in the Center’s programs, unless such accommodations would impose an undue hardship on the Center or fundamentally alter the nature of the Center’s educational program. Each accommodation request will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Individuals seeking an accommodation should contact the Administrative Director marcia.hodges@sfcp.org. In order for the Center to evaluate the request for accommodation, the individual requesting accommodation may be required to provide information from a health care provider concerning the need for accommodation. Such information will be kept confidential.

Confidentiality Policy
All participants in SFCP programs commit to upholding the confidentiality of any clinical material discussed, including a commitment not to reference any clinical vignettes or clinical process material outside the classroom, even in disguised form.  In addition, any process notes used in case conference (in print or electronic form) will be destroyed or returned to the presenter immediately following the case presentation.
