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. Please see the following link to review the SFCP Guidelines for Requesting Disability Accommodations.  Individuals seeking an accommodation should contact the Administrative Director marcia.hodges@sfcp.org.
