The Rivista di Psicoterapia Relazionale (Journal of Relational Psychotherapy), is a scientific journal first published in 1982 with the name Attraverso lo Specchio and subsequently, since 1995, with its present name. From the very beginning its main goals have been the emerging themes of psychotherapy, as well as the specific clinical application of relational and systemic perspectives in understanding and treating individual and family problems. The adoption of a complexity perspective as well as of a multiple levels of analysis has been essential in covering vast and controversial issues like the cultural and psychological changes the families and couples went through in the last decades, the development of new forms of family organizations, the critical relational interface with multicultural aspects and social conflicts. Confrontation with other perspectives and disciplines is considered another way to preserve coherence with the complexity model. Similarly, the choice of accepting contributions of prominent authors that share a critical position toward the complexity tends to expand the boundaries of the discipline. On the other hand the Journal regularly consider the contribution of young authors that could bring novelty and renovation, as well as introduce critics and debate. The Rivista di Psicoterapia Relazionale is a completely double blind peer-reviewed journal. The journal invites quality clinical and research papers that present original approaches to the intervention with couples, families and other natural systems. The scope of the journal encompasses the broad area of System Theory, Complexity Theory applied to psychology, psychiatry, and related sciences, as a way to investigate human behavior, mental health and their distresses as well as their care and treatment. Couples and Family Psychotherapy are the central focus of the journal, but original research, specific case reports and high-quality review articles, are regularly considered for publication.

The editors may decide not to submit the article to any referee in the case it is judged as not relevant, not rigorous or not meeting appropriate scientific standards. Reviewers' evaluations will be sent to the author also in case of negative response.
