PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Kate Stratton and Jo Russell

The idea for putting together a special edition of the Journal devoted to the work of Donald Meltzer was first suggested at the Donald Meltzer Development Fund’s 2015 conference, ‘A Mind of One’s Own: Exploring the Work of Donald Meltzer’. We are delighted to be able to publish some of the main papers originally delivered at the conference; three of the articles we have included here, by Margaret Rustin, Louise Allnutt and Pamela Sorensen, are revised versions of conference papers and will also be included in a new publication, Neo-Kleinian Thinking: Further Explorations of Donald Meltzer’s Psychoanalytic Ideas (Hahn and Cohen, Forthcoming). We hope that this edition will whet appetites for the book; we hope, too, that it will inspire renewed interest in some of Meltzer’s key concepts and highlight their continuing importance and relevance for child psychotherapists.

It is often said that Meltzer’s ideas should be felt intuitively, at an emotional level, before a rational understanding of them can be reached. For many of us, however, his particular strands of complex theorising can remain obscure, opaque, out of reach, the productions of a mind too sophisticated to follow with ease. Indeed, not all psychoanalytic child psychotherapy trainings include Meltzer’s writings as a core part of the curriculum and, even when included, his work often requires reading and re-reading, or expert exposition, before our own understanding begins to emerge.
