Psychoanalytic Perspectives


Steven Kuchuck —

Mission Statement

Psychoanalytic Perspectives encourages the exchange between relational, interpersonal, or intersubjective thought, and more traditional psychoanalytic theory. It hopes to provide, in its peer- reviewed journal, an intellectually nurturing space for dialogue between respected analysts and those who are just emerging. In the integrative spirit of the founders of The National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) the jounal also includes writing by practitioners of other therapy modalities, such as body-centered, cognitive, family, and group therapies.

The editors of Psychoanalytic Perspectives also encourage contributions of poetry, short stories, essays, and memoirs, whether they relate to the psychoanalytic experience or not. Interviews with respected theoreticians and clinicians, as well as roundtable discussions on various themes, at times with interdisciplinary panels, are a regular feature of the journal, along with book reviews and reviews of other media, such as film, theater, and art. In addition to supporting clinical and the creative discussions, we are also committed to being a forum for current matters of social concern in our communities, in our country, and in our world. We welcome letters to the editors and commentaries on articles or other issues of importance to be considered for publication.
