This issue addresses the mental health needs of people with intellectual disability.

The history of transcultural psychiatry has recently attracted much attention, this issue presents papers from a 2016 workshop for an international panel of scholars at the Maison de Sciences de l’Homme Paris-Nord (MSH-PN). By conceiving of transcultural psychiatry as a dynamic social field that frames its knowledge claims around epistemic objects that are specific to the field, and by focusing on the ways that concepts within this field are used to organize intellectual work, several themes are explored that draw this field into the historiography of psychiatry.
Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry’s latest issue contains a special section of articles about Physical Health Conditions and their impact on child psychology and psychiatry. Including papers on the rehabilitation for adolescents with severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, experiences of children diagnosed with cancer and identity formation in young people with chronic illnesses.
