Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Jean Arundale


Research in neuropsychoanalysis is helping to understand how brain structures are affected by psychological processes in early infancy, laying down the biological substrate of the human unconscious. Allan Schore reports evidence supporting the idea that mother-infant interactions directly influence the organization of brain systems in the early critical period of growth, and how these systems can be reorganized in the adult as a result of psychotherapeutic experiences.

Metaphor's special role in psychotherapy is due to its claims on the imagination, traditionally believed to provide a direct route to the unconscious. Terri Eynon investigates new theories in cognitive linguistics that show language to be fundamentally structured by metaphor, underpinning and extending the psychoanalytic view that metaphor is at the heart of language and meaning.

Symbol formation, the most remarkable achievement of the human mind, is discussed by Giovanna Rita DiCeglie. Patients produce, unconsciously, symbolic representations that enable the analyst to understand the people, thoughts and feelings within the patient's internal world.

In the past year or so there has been a worrying reduction in the number of submissions of clinical articles to the British Journal of Psychotherapy. If we are to continue to learn from each other and increase our body of knowledge, we must have the freedom to report our clinical experiences, questions, nagging doubts and mistakes in publications, as well as in public forums.
