Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to describe the current state of psychoanalytic publishing and writing and identify significant changes in the field.
  • Participants will be able to describe contemporary styles of psychoanalytic writing.
  • Participants will be able to identify methods for writing clinical material while preserving patients’ confidentiality.
From the outset, journals have served as a vital forum for psychoanalytic ideas and debate. Nevertheless, many clinicians remain reluctant to write for publication. The goal of this workshop is to explore challenges which commonly face writers in our field. It will begin with an
overview of the current state of psychoanalytic publishing and writing, including the impact of web publishing and the PEP archive. It will move on to examine evolving styles in psychoanalytic writing, focusing on the ways in which relational and intersubjective thinking has encouraged the emergence of a more personal voice in contemporary writing, and the opportunities for writers, which this change presents. Using examples, it will demonstrate ways to shape written material and articulate ideas. Finally, it will focus on specific methods for including clinical material while preserving patients’ confidentiality.
