Obituary

Paul Barrows

It is with the deepest sadness that I have to report the death of my co-editor Hamish Canham, who died from cancer on July 5th aged 40.

He was an exceptional editor and a delight to work with. An accomplished and gifted writer himself, he was also very encouraging of others, showing great tact combined with enthusiasm in helping authors to give of their best. At the same time, his deep commitment to the values of the profession meant that he always maintained the highest standards and the Journal has benefited hugely as a result.

When asked about taking on the role of co-editor Hamish was already immensely busy with teaching and helping to organize the child psychotherapy training at the Tavistock Clinic, and I was in some doubt whether he would feel able to accept this additional task. Fortunately he did and he began as co-editor with the December 2001 number. Despite his many other commitments these never got in the way of his unstinting hard work on behalf of the JCP, as many a late night e-mail testified, and it was with the greatest reluctance that he was eventually obliged to give up the editorship as his illness progressed.

His death represents a terrible loss to the Journal which had already benefited so much from his professionalism and knowledge and which stood to gain so much more. It is also a major loss to the profession as a whole. But it is particularly as such a warm and lively friend and colleague that all of us on the Editorial Board will greatly miss him.
