PRESENTATION AND AIMS OF THE REVIEW
The International Review of Couple and Family Psychoanalysis is an open access fully peer reviewed journal published two times a year (June and December). It is an international journal on couple and family psychoanalysis, publishing extensive contributions by authors throughout the world – facilitated by its international editorial board and the policy of allowing submission and review in three languages (English, French, and Spanish).
As such, its psychoanalytic frame of reference is wide-ranging and includes all schools of analytic practice. Conscious that many clinicians do not work only in the consulting room, the Review encourages dialogue between private practice and institutionally based practice.
We invite papers on clinical and/or theoretical work, whether a single case-study or a general discussion using detailed clinical vignettes from several cases; and based in couple and/or family practice.
We welcome theoretical papers, especially where there is theoretical innovation. We invite discussions of assessment; clinical confidentiality; standards, training and supervision. We invite reflective research papers, whether qualitatively or quantitatively based, and with a clinical focus; papers on the unconscious dynamics of clinical practice, couple or family; and papers offering a psychoanalytic approach on professional, historical, and cultural issues. We also encourage concepts deepen description (Dictionary section), interviews and debates (Interviews/Debates section), and Book reviews (Book reviews section)
