The Journal of Social Work Practice publishes high quality refereed articles devoted to the exploration and analysis of practice in social welfare and allied health professions from psychodynamic and systemic perspectives. This includes counselling, social care planning, education and training, research, institutional life, management and organisation or policy-making. Articles are also welcome that critically examine the psychodynamic tradition in the light of other theoretical orientations or explanatory systems. The Journal of Social Work Practice is committed to a policy of equal opportunities and actively strives to foster all forms of intercultural dialogue and debate. The journal thus aims to: provide a unique forum for the application of current understandings of conscious processes to social work practice with individuals, couples, families and communities; relate these ideas to institutional life and social policy formation link the psychodynamic tradition with other theoretical orientations foster intercultural dialogue and debate. In future the journal will publish a broader scope of material, to include shorter commentaries, conference reports, items addressing professional debates and material which reflects on the social and political context of practice. The core of the journal will continue to be high-quality refereed articles devoted to the exploration and analysis of social work practice themes from psychodynamic and systemic perspectives. The new Editors would like to to encourage shorter items for publication as well as longer articles conforming to the existing style and would be pleased to discuss proposals or 'early ideas' with potential contributors. Group for the Advancement of Psychodynamics and Psychotherapy in Social Work (GAPS), the owner of Journal of Social Work Practice, exists to promote good practice in all social work agencies.
