fort da

The Journal of the Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

A Regional Affiliate of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39), American Psychological Association

fort da is a psychoanalytic journal that provides a forum for San Francisco Bay Area professionals as well as national and international thinkers and clinicians. fort da publishes work on psychoanalytic theory, practice, research, and applied psychoanalysis -- in the form of articles, reviews, interviews, essays, commentary, and poetry.

fort da encourages writers to present their ideas and views on psychoanalysis, both inside and outside the consulting room, giving voice to the multiple ways in which psychoanalytic thinking enriches life. We support creative, evocative, and associational styles rather than a strictly academic format, encouraging material that is at once accessible, lively and of a high intellectual standard.
