Celebration and Innovation

Arnold D. Richards

As the year 2000 draws to a close, we at JAPA mark the end of a year of celebration with a second special fall issue. The title of this double issue, Psychoanalysis, Development, and the Life Cycle, is a fitting one for our closing tribute to the new millennium and the first hundred years of our discipline. Fittingly too, this issue is dedicated to Sylvia Brody, whose fifty years of psychoanalytic research and practice have added so much to our understanding of development in infancy and beyond, and whose spirit will continue to inspire us through the new annual Award that her generosity has made possible. In her honor this issue contains a wealth of studies of developmental theory and its clinical implications, with particular attention to Margaret Mahler's seminal work on separation-individuation and John Bowlby's equally fundamental vision of attachment theory. We think our readers will find the broad range of contributions informative, controversial, and an advance for our field.

A last note: The papers on attachment in the following section (pp. 1045-1195) were originally presented at the Fall Meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association, New York, December 20, 1997. This is the first time, I believe, that JAPA has presented a panel in its entirety. This one was entitled “Attachment: Research, Theory, Application.” It was chaired by Joseph Lichtenberg. The panelists were Judith F. Chused (discussant), Peter Fonagy, Mary Main, Stephen Seligman (reporter), and Arietta Slade. JAPA is pleased to present this important panel complete, with all of its component papers in revised and expanded form.
