The journal explores the relevance of psychodynamic ideas to different occupational settings. It emphasizes setting and application as well as theory and technique and focuses on four broad areas: • Clinical practice • The understanding of group and organisational processes • The use of psychodynamic ideas and methods in different occupations settings (for example, education and

    training, health care, social work, pastoral care, management and consultancy). • The understanding of social, political and cultural issues. The journal aims to make psychodynamic ideas accessible to a broad audience and is a home for new, as well as experienced, writers.
