About New Associations

New Associations is a tri-yearly magazine written for and by those interested in psychoanalytic thinking. It focuses on the application of psychoanalytic thinking to the social, cultural, and political world, rather than just to the consulting room.

It has an international readership of over 2,000, including all BPC Registrants and Scholars who receive it as part of their membership. Subscription is available to anyone interested in psychoanalytic thinking.

New Associations addresses challenging topics and issues, and we welcome innovative articles that interrogate the profession itself — although we try to avoid too much introspection.

Mailing Dates:

SPRING issue (mailed late March/early April)
SUMMER issue (mailed late July/early August)
WINTER issue (mailed late November)

New Associations is widely regarded as one of the liveliest publications in the psychoanalytic field with contributions from the professions leading thinkers and change makers

Environmental impact

We are working to reduce its impact on the environment. New Associations is printed on environmentally friendly paper using plant based inks and is distributed in paper envelopes.


New Associations is committed to involving a wide range of voices from the psychoanalytic and psychodynamic community. Like the BPC, it opposes any discrimination of any kind. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination on the basis of age, race, gender, ethnic origin, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, and position in professional hierarchy.

Views expressed in New Associations are not necessarily those of the BPC nor of New Associations editors.
