From the Editors

Dear IARPP Community,

We are pleased once again to share the Bookshelf edition of the IARPP eNews with all of you.  In this issue we highlight the recent contributions to psychoanalytic scholarship made by members of our international community.

Our members have recently published a diverse array of books covering topics that include, among others, anguish, torture, fairy tales, dance, the Holocaust, and the interpersonal perspective, as well as a translation into Spanish of Daniel Stern’s classic text, The Present Moment in Psychotherapy and Everyday Life.

In addition, our members have published a number of book chapters and articles.  We would like to draw your attention in particular to Irit Felsen’s (USA) research with Dori Laub that culminated in two chapters in Laub and Hamburger’s important volume, Psychoanalysis and Holocaust Testimony:  Unwanted Memories of Social Trauma.

Finally, IARPP members are involved with numerous programs and presentations.  In particular, Billie Pivnick (USA) and Jane Hassinger (USA) are announcing an upcoming web seminar series geared toward psychoanalytic clinicians practicing in community-based settings.

See below for a detailed list of all articles in this issue of the IARPP Bookshelf.  We wish to congratulate our members on their accomplishments!  Also, please see below for information about submitting items to an upcoming issue of the IARPP Bookshelf or eNews.  The next deadline for submissions is October 31, 2017.
