Rosine Perelberg

In November 1994 the Anna Freud Centre held its 16th International Scientific Colloquium, on the theme ‘The Psychoanalytic Understanding and Treatment of Violence in Children and Young Adults’. In order to accommodate a larger invited audience, the plenary sessions took place in a neighbouring hall and the number of participants totalled approximately 130. This year there were six workshop groups, and instead of a panel discussion the workshop chairmen brought questions from their groups for general discussion by the whole audience.

1 I am very grateful to Dr Clifford Yorke, Editor of the Bulletin of the Anna Freud Centre, and to his editorial board, as well as to Mrs Anne-Marie Sandler, for their invitation to be the Guest Editor of this issue. I would also like to thank Barbara Sullivan for her support and assistance in the preparation of this issue and Judith Perle for her editorial skills and generosity; to all the staff at the Anna Freud Centre for their participation in the series of seminars on violence which took place throughout the autumn of 1994 at the Centre. I should like to acknowledge the contribution of the Young Adults Research Group, where the issue of violence has been discussed over a number of years. This group has undertaken the analysis of young adults as part of a subsidized scheme and has met twice weekly since November 1990. The initial chairmanship of George Moran was followed, after his death, by the clinical direction of Mrs Anne-Marie Sandler. The aims of the research, whose director is Professor Peter Fonagy, include the study of the efficacy of psychoanalysis with this age-group. In addition to Anne-Marie Sandler, Peter Fonagy and myself, the members of the group are Anthony Bateman, Marion Burgner, Luigi Caparrota, Rosemary Davies, Rose Edgcumbe, Julia Fabricius, Anne Harrison, Hansi Kennedy, Brian Martindale, Duncan McLean, Joan Schachter, Maria Tallandini, Sally Weintrobe and Anne Zachary. Finally, my thanks to the contributors to this issue for trusting my editorial judgement.
