Relational Perspectives Book Series

The Relational Perspectives Book Series publishes books that grow out of or contribute to the relational tradition in contemporary psychoanalysis. Now under the editorial supervision of Lewis Aron and Adrienne Harris with the assistance of Associate Editors Steven Kuchuck and Eyal Rozmarin, the Relational Perspectives Book Series originated in 1990 under the editorial eye of the late Stephen A. Mitchell. Mitchell was the most prolific and influential of the originators of the relational tradition. He was committed to dialogue among psychoanalysts and he abhorred the authoritarianism that dictated adherence to a rigid set of beliefs or technical restrictions. He championed open discussion, comparative and integrative approaches, and he promoted new voices across the generations.

Included in the Relational Perspectives Book Series are authors and works that come from within the relational tradition, extend and develop the tradition, as well as works that critique relational approaches or compare and contrast it with alternative points of view.  The series includes our most distinguished senior psychoanalysts along with younger contributors who bring fresh vision.

Steven joined the Relational Perspectives Book Series as Associate Editor in April 2013. He works alongside of Lew, Adrienne and Eyal to cultivate and edit new contributions to the literature.
