Editorial

The menopausal woman may not be 'an unstable oestrogen starved' woman responsible for 'untold misery' as sixties gynaecologist Robert Wilson would have had us believe. But viewed through the lens of Western biomedical science, 'the change' is still a time of poor emotional and physical health. Yet rural Greek women and those in the Mayan culture report few problems during the menopause transition.

As Beverley Ayers, Mark Forshaw and Myra Hunter say on p.348, between biological and cultural understandings of menopause there is a gulf that psychologists are well placed to explore.
Elsewhere, allow me to highlight two relatively new additions to The Psychologist which I feel are going from strength to strength. Our 'Big picture' centrespread is a striking image on some interesting work: I hope it will adorn psychologists' walls across the land. 'Looking back' (p.392) is a fascinating detective story on the hunt for 'Little Albert', one of psychology's most enduring mysteries; and there's plenty of good news for members in 'Society'. Happy reading, and tweet your thoughts on the issue @psychmag.
