'The child is father to the man' wrote William Wordsworth. Of course, he was writing about himself and how his delight in seeing a rainbow as a grown man was the same for him as when a child. The deeper meaning is that our adult personalities are formed in childhood. But there is perhaps a darker meaning too. Maltreatment in childhood has been shown to be one of the risk factors for psychosis in later life. Helen Fisher's article 'Mind the gap' (p.798) examines the various candidate mechanisms that might be involved in this association.

In our September issue we brought together several contributions on how the current austerity climate is affecting how psychologists research, teach and practise. The austerity theme is continued and widened in this issue, not only with letters in response but also with Mark Burton's article (p.802) appealing for a renewal of the ethical basis on which psychology is practised. Austerity will be with us for some time to come, so the politicians warn us; we will accordingly continue to explore the psychological implications.
