Jessica Kingsley Publishers was founded in 1987 in London by Jessica Kingsley and is committed to publishing books that make a difference. In 2004 we opened our US office in Philadelphia and in 2017 we became part of the John Murray Press division of Hachette Group.
We publish books for professionals and general readers in a range of subjects. We are well known for our long established lists on the autism spectrum, social work, and arts therapies. More recently we have published extensively in the fields of mental health, counselling, palliative care, practical theology and gender diversity. We have a range of graphic novels across these subject areas, and books for children, on issues including bereavement, depression and anger.
