Reviews and Endorsements

'This new journal signals the coming of age of psychoanalytic couple and family psychotherapy and reasserts the extraordinary utility of psychoanalytic principles to the understanding of human interaction. Though psychoanalysis was born out of the study of the dynamic internal world of the individual, its applicability to this investigation of different expressions of the human condition, intrapsychic and interpersonal, now including couples and families as well as groups and institutions, is further demonstrated by this journal. Psychoanalytic clinical work with couples and families now has a voice.'
- Stanley Ruszczynski, Psychoanalyst, British Psychoanalytic Association; Clinical Director, Portman Clinic, Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, London

'We are long-time admirers of the rich body of theory and practice coming out of the British Society of Couple Psychotherapists and Counsellors, and the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships. What has been missing from the international community is a journal that expands psychoanalytic thinking to encompass the contexts of couple and family relationships - with an eye to the practice of therapy with couples and families. This adventurous new journal aims to stimulate creative thinking for us, our colleagues, and our students. Committed to expanding perspectives on therapeutic practice by bringing ideas from an international group of scholars, researchers, and practitioners, Couple and Family Psychoanalysis will contribute to the construction of a stronger foundation for psychodynamically informed clinical research and practice.'
- Philip A. Cowan and Carolyn Pape Cowan, Professors Emeriti, University of California, Berkeley and Co-Directors and evaluators of three longitudinal family intervention projects, Becoming a Family, Schoolchildren and Their Families, and Supporting Father Involvement

'This is a very welcome new project promising to meet a longstanding need, providing an international forum for professionals with a psychoanalytical orientation to share and further develop their work with couples and families. It includes case-based papers, research and reviews.'
- Sally Box, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, Patron and Staff Clinical Head, The Bridge Foundation, Bristol

'The publication of the journal Couple and Family Psychoanalysis is a landmark event for practitioners in the field. With an exciting and groundbreaking brief, this new journal brings together the most serious theorists and clinicians who are developing psychoanalytic practice with couples and families. This publication is testament to the growing centrality and maturity of the extension of psychoanalytic thinking to the family and will be invaluable in furthering these important ideas, bringing them to a wider audience.'
- Susanna Abse, Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and Chief Executive, The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships
