This call for papers for a Special Edition seeks submissions concerning research and practice in the counselling and psychotherapy field addressing international counselling.
Interest in international counselling research and practice is growing, owing to ever-changing cultural landscapes and the effects of globalisation. Given the evolving nature of international counselling, it is important to platform existing theory and knowledge in addition to disseminating groundbreaking research among counselling researchers and practitioners for best practices.
The goals of this special edition are: (1) to open a space for dialogue and raise awareness and reflexivity in relation to the profession's identity, as well as international counselling training, supervision, research and practice, and (2) to stimulate further international counselling theory, training, research and practice.
Contributors are invited to send submissions in any aspect of counselling that can offer an international perspective. Of interest are submissions in:
- Counsellor training, practice and supervision
- Counselling supervisors’ training, practice and supervision
- Challenges arising from international settings
- International perspectives and research in counselling
- Intranational and international similarities and differences in international counselling, and
- Cross-national comparison of counselling and counselling supervision approaches.
