Welcome to Volume 7 of the European Journal of Counselling Theory, Research and Practice (EJC-TRAP). Looking back at Volume 6 we published a paper on Skills in Single-Session Therapy (Dryden, 2022) and two book reviews (Basa, 2022; Hensel, 2022).
The European Journal of Counselling Theory, Research and Practice is an international peer reviewed journal. We are keen to receive contributions from researchers, counsellors, counselling psychologists and psychotherapists. We publish theory, research and practice articles on all aspects of counselling and psychotherapy. We invite contributions to the journal on the following: original research; research protocols; review articles; brief reports; techniques, interventions and strategies; case studies; book reviews; keynote papers; conference, congress and symposium reports.
The editors can provide initial guidance as to whether or not a particular topic is suitable for the journal. Email us the title and abstract and we will endeavour to respond within 10 working days. We are also interested in receiving proposals from experts in the field who are considering editing a special issue on a particular topic relevant to counselling and/or psychotherapy theory, research and practice.
