Symbol opinion vote Comment: Did a more careful examination of the sources. They are all routine or primary. We need to see independent, reliable and substantial coverage of the subject. Also, the external links need to be removed that are present within the article itself and either put in the exlinks section or scrapped altogether. I would also recommend trimming the bib and just referncing a place where the whole list can be found. Sulfurboy (talk) 17:51, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Symbol opinion vote Comment: I still believe there is notability concerns, but also peacocking phrases need to be cleaned up such as "a psychoanalyst known for her provocative rethinking" Sulfurboy (talk) 19:29, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Professional Career

Dr. Atlas practices psychoanalysis and is a clinical supervisor in private practice in Manhattan[6]. As an essayist and author, Atlas has published numerous articles and book chapters that focus primarily on gender and sexuality[7]. 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)[8] and faculty of the National Training Programs (NTP)[9] and the Four Year Adult training program[10] of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP) in NYC.

In 2009, she became a recipient of the NADT Research award, in the category 'Theoretical Research Award for Thesis/Dissertation'[11]. From 2011-2013, she co-chaired and moderated the on-line Colloquium Series for the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP)[12]. She is on the editorial board of Psychoanalytic Perspectives[13] and currently serves on the board of directors of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association[14].

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)[15] offers an original construction of sexuality as located in the tension between what she has termed “Enigmatic” and “Pragmatic” dimensions, 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 the book is "clinically astute and theoretically provocative", and that Atlas "recaptures the realm of sexuality for relational psychoanalysis[16]."
