The Journal of Infant, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy invites submissions of articles written by and for infant, child, and adolescent psychoanalysts and psychodynamic psychotherapists, as well as researcher/clinicians from diverse backgrounds exploring the contributions of psychoanalytic developmental understanding and treatment approaches to real world clinical work with infants, children, adolescents and parents.
Articles representative of a full range of contemporary psychoanalytic traditions are welcome, as well as comparative and integrative approaches.
Articles may include case studies integrating contemporary theoretical perspectives and/or grounded in research findings, clinical concerns, theoretical trends, training issues, and empirical, including qualitative and early stage exploratory research with implications for the contemporary practitioner.
In addition to clinical case studies of intensive and long term psychoanalytic treatment, we welcome articles exploring the application of psychoanalytic understanding to the development of short term and novel therapies, work in settings outside of the traditional consulting room, such as community, school and medical settings, as well as work sensitive to the impact of the socio/cultural context, issues of diversity, and contemporary dllemmas facing practitioners and the infants, parents, children and adolescents they treat.
