Welcome to the latest issue of JCPCP - a sort of special edition mainly by people called David (a volume by and about those with a traditional female name is in the pipeline). Institutional crises in the world of psy are on the agenda with a piece analysing problems at the BPS. We also take a wider look at clinical psychology in the UK and it's relationship with public health. There is also a longer piece by an infamous David on the cultural context of therapy. The full contents can be viewed here.
