Evolving Self

 Interpersonal Psychoanalytic Theory for the 21st Century

Lexington Books

ZOOM BOOK LAUNCH! Wednesday, September 27, 6pm Eastern

Interpersonal Psychoanalytic Theory assumes that people can achieve insight into how, in their interactions with people, they become who they are, and how they can change patterns of living that get in their way of need fulfillment. It posits that people are born with a blueprint for growth and development (like a seedling possesses the potential for growing into a flourishing tree) that includes respect, self-fulfillment, expansion of experiences and ever widening and deepening human interactions.

We are excited to launch this website in anticipation of the publication of our forthcoming book, INTERPERSONAL PSYCHOANALYLTIC THEORY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY: EVOLVING SELF: Lexington Books, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield, on February 15, 2023.  Please feel free to leave comments on our content pages.
