Erasing National Boundaries
The new editor of the Journal of Counseling Psychology will incorporate more research from scientists around the world
(from Monitor on Psychology, January 2011)


The Journal of Counseling Psychology® publishes empirical research in the areas of

  • counseling activities (including assessment, interventions, consultation, supervision, training, prevention, and psychological education)
  • career development and vocational psychology
  • diversity and underrepresented populations in relation to counseling activities
  • the development of new measures to be used in counseling activities
  • professional issues in counseling psychology

In addition, the Journal of Counseling Psychology considers reviews or theoretical contributions that have the potential for stimulating further research in counseling psychology, and conceptual or empirical contributions about methodological issues in counseling psychology research.

The Journal of Counseling Psychology considers manuscripts that deal with clients who are not severely disturbed, who have problems with living, or who are experiencing developmental crises. Manuscripts that deal with the strengths or healthy aspects of more severely disturbed clients also are considered.

Both quantitative and qualitative methods are appropriate. Extensions of previous studies, implications for public policy or social action, and counseling research and applications are encouraged.
