The American Journal of Psychoanalysis is an international psychoanalytic quarterly of the Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. The AJP is a member of the International Council of Editors of Psychoanalytic Journals.

The now 83-year-old journal continues our cherished tradition of free exchange of thoughts, investigation and discussion of a diversity of opinion in psychoanalysis. The journal first flourished under the editorship of Karen Horney, MD (1941-1952) and after her it was nurtured and guided by the editorships of Harold Kelman, MD (1953-1960 and 1962-1969), Ralph Slater, MD (1961-1962), Helen DeRosis, MD (1969-1985), Mario Rendon, MD (1985-1991) and Douglas Ingram, MD (1991-2000). They were all committed to the highest levels of excellence and respect to the founding members’ wishes to be a forum to communicate the best ideas of psychoanalysis in a spirit free from dogma. The current Editor-in-Chief, Giselle Galdi, PhD (2000 to date) is informed by the both the past and the present, by those who worked before, and by those who continue to work with the AJP.

The AJP owes its ongoing vitality to the countless authors whose works have made our Journal an invaluable source for clinicians, researchers and students of human sciences for all these decades and the indispensable work, expertise and support of its dedicated Associate Editors, Section Editors and the Editorial Board:
