CAMH Editorial: Volume 24, Issue 4, November 2019

Editorial: The job of an editor—one year on

Dennis Ougrin

Abstract

Incredible as it still sounds to me, it has now been a year since I took over as the editor‐in‐chief of Child and Adolescent Mental Health. It is time to both look back and look forward. Over the past year, my approach remained unchanged: CAMH should grow to become a leading source of the most clinically relevant knowledge worldwide in our field. I would like you, our readers, to think of CAMH whenever you need clinical advice, a research update, or an innovative service development idea.

We hope that you enjoy the full editorial of this issue, which is free on the Online Wiley Library.

Discussion

Borderline personality disorder is a construct
Probably mythical
It has minimal validity
Even the word borderline is placeless on a map
Underlying it is probably Asd /Adhd or subthreshold features of these conditions
Originally it was between neurosis and psychosis a kind of neverland
