Editorial

Please join me in celebrating the 30th anniversary of Psychoanalytic Psychology. The first and most obvious recognition of this anniversary is found in the new cover design, which features the image of a tree to convey that our roots are deep and secure, on the one hand, and that we are flourishing with fresh growth and many new branches, on the other hand.

In this issue, our roots will be explored in a new history section. The lead article is a fascinating reflection on the history of the Research Center for Mental Health at New York University by one of the founders and codirectors, Bob Holt. The article demonstrates how influential psychologists were in pushing psychoanalysis to value and incorporate research, but it also documents the failure to sustain a successful research culture in our field. It is amazing to read about federally funded research for testing psychoanalytic ideas with subjects under the influence of LSD. Indeed, it is impossible not to contrast this to the current environment in which psychoanalytic research of any kind stands no chance of funding. Yet, let us be hopeful and entertain the notion that research 50 years into the future might view what is regarded as legitimate study today as equally strange. This section also includes another kind of look into history: Henry Seiden's thoughtful article on the impact of Hemingway's experience in World War I. The review section of this issue also contains a relevant book review by historian Eli Zaretsky of John Burnham's A Century of Psychoanalysis.
