Editorial

Ann Scott

2013 ushers in a year of new developments for the British Journal of Psychotherapy. They are seen visually in this issue with our new cover and, for the first time, a strapline that more precisely identifies the Journal's project. The Journal has a figurative cover for the first time in its history, but deliberately retains the ‘BJP red’ of our previous, striking typographic design. Image and text are designed to work together: ‘Freud's legacy’ is evoked in an evocative image from the consulting room at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead, now part of the Freud Museum in London. We are reminded of the significance, for psychoanalysis, of both literature and cultural artefact; and of the ambience of the consulting room as a liminal space, in touch with both inner and outer worlds. The reference to ‘psychoanalytic and Jungian practice today’ defines the Journal's reach more explicitly than before, while being congruent with our Aims and Scope statement as a whole. Other developments as we go through the year will be signposted in subsequent Editorials and on the Journal's webpages.

This issue of the Journal concludes a three-part exploration of the work of Armando B. Ferrari. It opened with Paolo Carignani's consideration of ‘the body in psychoanalysis’ in BJP 28(3): 288-318, and continued with Richard Carvalho's overview of Ferrari's work in BJP 28(4): 413-34. Carvalho suggested that Ferrari's approach, postulating a ‘direct relationship between body and mind’ that contrasted with the object relations model, offered a significant approach to the treatment of psychosis, psychosomatic illness and anorexia.
