This peer-reviewed journal proposes to explore the introduction of psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic therapy, and the wider application of psychoanalytic ideas into China. It aims to have articles authored by Chinese and Western contributors, to explore ideas that apply to the Chinese clinical population, cultural issues relevant to the practice of analysis and psychotherapy, and to the cultural interface between Western ideas underpinning psychoanalysis, and the richness of Chinese intellectual and philosophical ideas that analysis must encounter in the process of its introduction.

Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in China features theoretical and clinical contributions, philosophical and cultural explorations, applications such as the analytic study of art, cinema and theatre, social aspects of analytic thought, and wider cultural and social issues that set the context for clinical practice.

Reviews and Endorsements

The journal of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in China is one of the most significant collections of papers on the current status of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy in China. We happily welcome its reissue.
Elise Snyder, M.D., President, China American Psychoanalytic Alliance (CAPA) and past President, American College of Psychoanalysts

Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in China is the only journal that bridges the East–West dialogue that we desperately need to understand each other and to make the psychoanalytic therapies maximally relevant to the Chinese. I welcome its pathbreaking publication!
Ralph Fishkin, North American Representative to the International Psychoanalytical Association Board and past Secretary, American Psychoanalytic Association

Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in China is an exciting and welcome resource in the clinical and theoretical new frontier of teaching and practice of psychoanalytic therapies in China, a society both ancient and ultra-modern. The articles by both Chinese and Westerners are refreshing in their initiative in exploring fascinating promising new perspectives.
Peter Loewenberg, Professor of History and Political Psychology, UCLA, past Chair of the International Psychoanalytical Association’s China Committee Training and Supervising Analyst and Former Dean, New Center for Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles

Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in China serves a most important role in China – and in the psychoanalytic world. The journal is an inspiration for the development of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy in China. This is a relatively new field in China but has been welcomed as it represents a possibility for clinicians to get insight into psychoanalytic way of thinking about development and the mind’s functioning. But also, and maybe more importantly, the journal is an arena where new ways of developing psychoanalysis may happen based on the dialogue between psychoanalysis and the very long traditions of thinking about the relation between mind, body and social context that exists in China.
Sverre Varvin, Training Analyst in the Norwegian Psychoanalytic Society, Founder of the Norwegian China Training Program and Chair, the International Psychoanalytical Association’s China Committee
