The present virtual issue presents publications from the Journal from July 2011 through June 2012 (volumes 124 and 125). This selection of articles covers a broad variety of topics such as social cognition and psychosocial functioning, psychopathological predictors, comorbidity and burden of illness, clinical outcome after childhood maltreatment and validity of routine diagnoses, all topics of clinical relevance.
