Contents

Next month, The Psychologist is reborn. We emerged from the Bulletin of the British Psychological Society 29 years ago, and have been through several regenerations since. The last time, in 2008, I put 'retirement' on the cover of the final issue in the old style. This time, as we head towards perhaps more significant change, it's ageing and emotion.

In that article (p.908), I was struck by the lines 'as time horizons shrink with increasing age, shifts in motivational goals typically ensue. This leads to greater investment in social relationships and, subsequently, an enhanced appreciation of life.' Finding parallels with our own lifespan development, I pondered a growing investment in and appreciation of our social relationships with you, the readers. To an even greater extent than most publications, we simply couldn't do this without you. So thank you, and please do reach out over this issue, how you might contribute in the future, and your reaction when that old but new friend pops through your door next month.
