Psychodynamic Psychiatry was created in response to the need for the continued study and teaching of psychodynamic concepts in organized psychiatry. Recent changes in psychiatric education have led to loss of psychodynamic knowledge, particularly in assessment and treatment planning, and skill, predominantly in sophisticated interviewing. Psychodynamic Psychiatry is the only psychiatric journal exclusively devoted to the study and discussion of these issues.
The central tenet of the journal is that psychodynamic principles are necessary for adequate understanding and treatment of people with psychiatric symptoms, syndromes and disorders. Its guiding framework is developmental and biopsychosocial.
Areas of particular interest include:
Other topics may be appropriate for Psychodynamic Psychiatry as well, and the editors welcome inquiries about the appropriateness of possible submissions. Articles may be organized as literature reviews, case presentations, and/or research studies.
