Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

From the Editor

by Adam Blum, Psy.D. and Loong Kwok, Psy.D.    
 
Last month, Impulse featured the last Potential Space feature by our Staff Writer Mark McKinley, Psy.D.  In it, he explored the metaphor of home. To borrow his words, home can be "a touchstone for knowing when life is moving astray."  This is significant because Mark has himself been a touchstone for what Impulse is and where we moved.  He wrote the very first Potential Space in April 2010, breaking ground on the new venture to capture more of the psychoanalytic thinking in our community. 
 
For the last four years, Mark's pieces have always tackled ambitious and broad topics that draw on history, philosophy, and phenomenology in addition to psychoanalysis.  He has consistently managed to condense his big ideas into 400 clinically relevant, experience-near words for a grateful readership (and editorial committee).  We wish him the best in his future endeavors and look forward to reading him in future publications.
