Psychoanalytic Interventions is a scholarly and professional series that seeks to explicate the power of psychoanalysis as a theoretical field and as a clinical and applied field in addressing pressing individual, community, societal and global issues. The series seeks to develop new thinking both within psychoanalytic theory, and in allied fields such as anthropology, history, postcolonial studies, and  race, class & gender studies, addressing the theoretical bases of issues such as conflict, migrations, inequality, entry into language and culture, difference, ideology, subjectivity, memory, psychiatric suffering, physical and symbolic violence, power, structures of participation, and the origins, workings and future of psychoanalysis itself. In terms of clinical, applied, and activist interventions, the series seeks to problematize and illustrate the workings of psychoanalytic interventions to address human subjectivity and possibility within the discursive frames within which lives are lived, illustrating how individual and group analysis, community work, and social activism informed by liberatory psychoanalytic principles enhance the possibilities of human freedom, or, at a minimum, address the challenges of living fully and developing communitarian structures within increasingly globalized market-driven societies.
