Aims and Scope
Journal of Clinical Psychology
Founded in 1945, the Journal of Clinical Psychology is a peer-reviewed forum devoted to research, assessment, and practice. Published eight times a year, the Journal includes research studies; articles on contemporary professional issues, single case research; brief reports (including dissertations in brief); notes from the field; and news and notes. In addition to papers on psychopathology, psychodiagnostics, and the psychotherapeutic process, the journal welcomes articles focusing on psychotherapy effectiveness research, psychological assessment and treatment matching, clinical outcomes, clinical health psychology, and behavioral medicine. From time to time, the Journal publishes Special Sections, featuring a selection of articles related to a single particularly timely or important theme; individuals interested in Guest Editing a Special Section are encouraged to contact the Editors.
Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Session
The twin challenges for mental health practitioners are to stay abreast of emerging therapeutic innovations and to identify the treatment methods and relationship stances that will prove most effective for each client. In Session, a branch of the Journal of Clinical Psychology, focuses on the clinical challenges confronting psychotherapists, in the form of either a distinct patient population or a therapeutic dilemma. Published four times a year, each issue of In Session features original articles illustrated through case reports by seasoned clinicians and informed by research reviews translated into clinical practice. Each issue examines a variety of theoretical orientations and treatment formats in jargon-free language. Case examples, clinical recommendations, and relevant research findings are combined to facilitate the selection and integration of effective methods.
Journal of Clinical Psychology is a monthly, peer-reviewed publication that consists of eight issues of the Journal proper and four issues of its branch, Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Session. In Session maintains separate editorial operations, reviewers, and policies.
