The Enigma of Desire: Sex, Longing and Belonging in Psychoanalysis
Atlas's book, The Enigma of Desire: Sex, Longing and Belonging in Psychoanalysis (Routledge, October 2015) offers an illuminating, original construction of sexuality as located in the tension between what she has termed “Enigmatic” and “Pragmatic” dimensions, deftly putting into play the binaries of known and unknown, seen and unseen, internal and external as well as oedipal and pre-oedipal experiences of the body. The leading psychoanalyst and feminist Jessica Benjamin declared that Atlas "recaptures the realm of sexuality for relational psychoanalysis."
Dr. Atlas practices psychoanalysis and is a clinical supervisor in private practice in Manhattan. As an essayist and author, Atlas has published numerous articles and book chapters that focus primarily on gender and sexuality. She is a clinical assistant professor on the faculty of the New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis, faculty member of the Institute for Expressive Analysis (IEA) and faculty of the National Training Programs (NTP) and the Four Year Adult training program of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) in NYC. Atlas teaches ongoing private study and supervision groups.
From 2011-2013, she co-chaired and moderated the on-line Colloquium Series for the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP). She is on the editorial board of Psychoanalytic Perspectives and currently serves on the board of directors of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association.
