Journals

The Journal of Child Psychotherapy is the official scientific journal of the Association of Child Psychotherapists and is published three times a year. It was first published in 1963.

The scope of the journal includes the theory and practice of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and work with infants, children and young people and their parents where there are emotional and psychological problems. It is concerned with a wide spectrum of emotional and behavioural disorders, ranging from the more severe conditions of autism, anorexia and depression and the traumas of emotional, physical and sexual abuse to problems such as bedwetting and soiling, eating difficulties and sleep disturbance. The journal also considers research and the applications of psychoanalytic theory and practice in other settings or fields.

Co-Editors: Teresa Bailey and Anne Hurley
