The current preoccupation of the Journal with the commemoration of the work of Frances Tustin (August 1995), Anna Freud (December 1995), Michael Fordham (this issue) and Donald Winnicott (December 1996) provides an intriguing reflection of child and adolescent psychotherapy at this point in time. These great thinkers, from whom some were privileged to learn personally while many more learnt through their publications, have all in their unique ways contributed to current practice in child psychotherapy throughout the world.

While this Journal aims to reflect the cutting edge of the contemporary clinical practice and innovative thought, the opportunity to contemplate and integrate the different threads of our psychoanalytic history is compelling. The great controversies of the past have given way to new forms of dialogue between the different psychoanalytic schools.

This edition of the Journal is true to these considerations of integrating past with present. It commemorates the work of Dr Michael Fordham who died in April 1995 and publishes new Jungian papers (by Elizabeth Urban, Miranda Davies and Jane Bunster), an American paper applying Kohut's thinking about grandiosity to multi-generational patterns of abuse (William Purcell) and an Italian paper discussing the role of psychoanalytic treatment following the refusal of chemotherapy by an adolescent suffering from a form of cancer (Paola Carbone).

In many ways, the life work of Michael Fordham exemplifies the value of integrating the different traditions within psychoanalysis. Fordham positioned analytical psychology between psychoanalysis and Jung's original formulations and had an international reputation. He co-edited the collected works of Jung, was one of the co-founders of the adult Jungian training in this country and was responsible for setting up the child Jungian training. Fordham published extensively, and we are privileged that his literary executors have given us permission to publish his last talk which captures his wisdom in a discursive and informal way.
