Psychodynamic Psychiatry is an enormously valuable journal for the entire field of psychiatry. We now know from a wealth of research that psychotherapy is effective and can change the brain. In Freud's day, theory alone suggested how the brain processes thoughts, feelings, and actions—today, a crescendo of progress in neuroscience brings daily news about everything from genomics to the neurobiology of the unconscious and of motivated behavior. Psychodynamic Psychiatry proposes, persuasively, that while clinicians absorb this new science, we must remain alert to the meaning of experience. The editors bring optimal expertise to reposition the journal exactly where it needs to be.”

—John M. Oldham, MD, Senior Vice President and Chief of Staff, The Menninger Clinic; Professor and Executive Vice Chair, Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Baylor College of Medicine

“This journal, greatly needed by psychodynamic clinicians at this time, signals with its new name and editorial policy that it will revisit and revitalize the biosocial model. Articles provide a bridge between current research findings and stimulating clinical perspectives.”

—Judith S. Schachter, MD, past president, American Psychoanalytic Association; Emeritus Training Analyst, Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center, and former Director, Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center
