    “It is an absolute honour to be joining the prestigious JCPP team as a specialist editor for psychosis. Psychotic phenomena are surprisingly common during childhood and adolescence and deserve greater research and clinical attention. I’m excited to have the opportunity to read and encourage submissions to JCPP on the aetiology, phenomenology, prevention, and treatment of psychosis during these key stages of development.”

    “I’m honored to have been invited to join the JCPP Editorial Board! Recent biological research in psychiatry teaches us about the dimensionality of the disorders we study and about the importance of a lifespan perspective in child and adolescent psychiatry. Seeing this view reflected in JCPP makes me look forward to being part of the team of editors.”
