JHP - Addiction cover
Dear friends of The Journal of Humanistic Psychiatry,

I hope you enjoy our Fall 2018 issue which has Addiction, as major theme. Our front cover in this number is The Triumph of Bacchus by Diego Velázquez. In this essay Meghan and Anna write two interesting essays on addiction from a personal and a scientific perspective. In the article section, Simon discusses the meaning of addiction in neuroscience and in our society. Meghan writes about psychedelics for the treatment of addiction. George writes and interesting article about Marshall McLuhan. In our cinema section, Neeral discusses the portrayal of addiction through an animated series and Evan talks about the significance of the film Requiem for a Dream from a personal perspective. Finally in our free text section, Matt discusses an essay on toxic individualism and I wrote an essay about my recent trip to Holy Land.

Now we are collecting for our upcoming issues which themes will be  The Afterlife for the Winter Issue and Jealousy for the Spring Issue. Thanks to the efforts of the members of this journal and the encouragement of our readers this journal will continue to be free online and available to all readers and users without advertisements or commercials.
