(ISSN 1475-3626)

Aims and scope

Psychodynamic Practice is a journal of counselling, psychotherapy and consultancy and it is written for professionals in all fields who use psychodynamic thinking in their work. The journal explores the relevance of psychodynamic ideas to different occupational settings. It emphasizes setting and application as well as theory and technique and focuses on four broad areas:

Clinical practice

The understanding of group and organisational processes

The use of psychodynamic ideas and methods in different occupational settings (for example, education and training, health care, social work, pastoral care, management and consultancy)

The understanding of social, political and cultural issues

The journal aims to make psychodynamic ideas accessible to a broad audience and is a home for new, as well as experienced, writers.

Each issue contains an editorial, articles, short papers and book reviews. An Open Space section contains short papers which reflect a range of themes, preoccupations and experience, including thoughts inspired by longer articles and the relationship between psychodynamic understanding, culture and the arts.

Psychodynamic Practice promotes high standards of practice, academic excellence and debate. It explores myths and misunderstandings about counselling and related professions. By keeping abreast of current developments in relevant professional fields and within society, Psychodynamic Practice represents the leading edge of thinking in the therapeutic professions.
