Caroline Bainbridge

It is a huge delight to publish this inaugural issue of Free Associations: Psychoanalysis and Culture, Media, Groups, Politics in its new online format. As many readers will know, in 1984, Robert M. Young established Free Associations as a leading publication that sought to make links between the different spheres of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, culture, politics and groups and the journal continued to be published in both print and online formats until 2005. A great many articles, interviews and commentaries by some of the leading names in the field were published during this period and it is an honour to have been asked by Bob Young to take on Editorship of the journal as it is re-launched as a fully peer-reviewed online journal. In an important gesture of continuity with the former incarnation of the journal, this edition includes an invaluable guide to the contents of previous editions which has been prepared by Robert M Young especially. It is worth noting that many of the articles listed in this piece are available online to subscribers to and many others are also available on the Human Nature website ( Similarly, in the spirit of previous editions, this issue contains works authored by both academics and clinicians, who often work from different perspectives and regimes of interest in relation to psychoanalytic theory, but whose contributions to the terrain of discussion and debate around the intellectual, social and cultural values of a psychotherapeutic approach are equally valid. In keeping with the aims of original journal, Free Associations sets out to maintain this space for engagement and debate and hopes to become a key point of reference for scholars and clinicians alike as it strives to continue with this project. To cite the aims specified in the original editorial:

Our aim is to be open to critical thinking within the analytic tradition, broadly conceived, and to stimulate discussion and debate about theory, practice, institutionalisation and trainings in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and related topics in clinical and social psychology and culture.
