Dialogue might be thought of as the sine qua non of healthy couple and family relationships. It is particularly pleasing therefore to present in this issue articles which illustrate dialogue operating at a number of different levels.

Carolyn and Phillip Cowan's “Personal View” makes a plea for closer collaboration between couple psychotherapists and couples researchers. We have the honour of publishing the 18th Annual Enid Balint Lecture, given this year by Joan Raphael-Leff, and with it, Christopher Clulow's response. By popular request, we reprint Susanna Abse's article “A problem shared is a problem … whose illness is it anyway?” supplemented by her current thoughts about the questions she posed in 2006. Seeking to find effective therapies for couples with complex difficulties, these two papers and that of Heather MacIntosh explore the potential role of mentalization. Avi Shmueli's commentary joins that discussion. Janine Wanlass describes the challenge of offering co-therapy cross-culturally in China via an interpreter. The “Clinical Narrative and Discussion” by Pierre Cachia and Jill Scharff, and Catriona Wrottesley's meeting with writer and historian, Deborah Cohen, continue the dialogical theme. All these contributions thus express the importance of opening our forums to debate and the exchange of ideas, as well as to self-examination, in the service of those seeking help to enhance their communication with one another.

We warmly welcome Stella Vaines to the Editorial Board as our new Arts Reviews Editor, hoping that, alongside our book reviews, the arts reviews will further reflect the breadth of vision, curiosity, and liveliness of you, the Journal's readers.
