ISSN (printed): 0003-0651. ISSN (electronic): 1941-2460.
Continuously published since 1952, JAPA is one of the preeminent psychoanalytic journals worldwide. Long recognized for the quality of its theoretical and clinical contributions, JAPA now functions as well as a major publication source for scientists and humanists whose work elaborates, applies, critiques, or otherwise impinges on psychoanalysis, including its epistemological foundations and its disciplinary status. Noteworthy topics in recent issues of JAPA include child psychoanalysis and the effectiveness of the intensive treatment of children; boundary violations; problems of memory and false memory syndrome; the concept of working through; the scientific status of psychoanalysis; and the relevance or irrelevance of infant observation for adult analysis. Now more than ever, JAPA publishes papers representing the full spectrum of psychoanalytic viewpoints, all the while maintaining the high scholarly and editorial standards that are its trademark. With an expanded book review section that includes works by clinicians, scholars, and critics alike, JAPA is essential reading for all who wish to keep abreast of psychoanalysis in these challenging times.
