It also has important information on JAP’s Sao Paulo conference ‘Civilisation in Transition – Clinical, Social and Academic Perspectives’: the date has changed to 9-11 April, 2021, and the conference will now be online.

I would be very grateful if you could forward this to members of your societies.

Many thanks

Call for papers and articles on the C-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter movement


We are living through tumultuous times. The Journal hopes to consider and document two significant issues in particular: the Covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement*.

We therefore invite you to submit either full papers (8,000 words), or briefer pieces (up to 4,000 words), on any facet of your experience of these phenomena that you think might be of interest to our readers. We will be particularly interested in papers that discuss and explore how these issues have manifested and been reflected within your consulting rooms – what have these momentous events raised in you and your patients and the process of analysis? And for Covid-19, how have you and your patients adjusted to virtual ways of working or other aspects of the pandemic e.g. issues around ‘infection’?

We are especially hoping to hear from our global readership about how you have been affected in your part of the world. Papers will be submitted to our normal process of review.

Please submit papers by October 30th 2020; for information on the process of submission please visit our website:

We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Marcus West, Nora Swan Foster, Amanda Dowd, John Merchant
Editors of the Journal of Analytical Psychology

* If there are other issues of particular importance to you we would, of course, also be pleased to receive papers concerning those and their impact within the consulting room and beyond.
