A Note from the Editor:

As the second issue of TAP under my editorship gets delivered to our members, I want to introduce the Editorial Board’s vision for TAP. While fulfilling its mandate to report news about goings-on in APsaA, the major focus of TAP will be to represent the thinking of our members, and also those outside our Association, about important and compelling issues that contribute to discourse among contemporary analysts. Two- to five- page reports on research, clinical, theoretical and applied psychoanalysis, as well as relevant ideas from adjacent fields, will be presented. Please note the contributions of Michael Slevin as the Special Sections editor, Luba Kessler as Psychoanalytic Education editor, Bob Galatzer-Levy as Science editor, Arlene Kramer Richards and Arnold Richards as Book Review editors, and Bruce Sklarew as Film editor.

We welcome contributions from all. If you have an idea or know of someone who might make an interesting contribution, please contact me and we can talk about implementing it on the pages of TAP. Letters to the Editor are also welcome, and can be sent to me at dougchavis@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest and readership, and we hope you enjoy TAP.

Doug Chavis
TAP Editor
