Dear Reader!

Considering first positive responses to the new graphical form of our journal, we believe it's been well accepted by the readers. However we still welcome any comments and letters regarding constructive changes and proposals which could improve the quarterly.

In this issue, we present a wide spectrum of research undertakings and results, from genetic explorations through analyses of psychopathology to different aspetcs of depression and its therapy. This time the research results captured here are all from Poland.

Taking into consideration the fact that recently we have been receiving relatively few papers on psychotherapy, we'd like to strongly encourage authors to send us such in the future.

We wish you a pleasant reading!
