Call for Papers for a Special Issue of
Evidence and Narratives in Psychotherapy Research and Practice
The guest editor of Psychologia invites researchers and practitioners to submit original articles for a special issue on evidence and narratives in psychotherapy research and practice. Historically, outcome research has favored quantitative data, while process research has valued narrative or qualitative data. In practice, outcome assessment of psychotherapy is informed by assessment of therapeutic process. The special issue welcomes papers on innovative approaches to evaluating psychotherapy process and outcome using a variety of clinical research designs. We welcome papers illustrating complementary roles of quantitative and qualitative data in contextualized case-based studies and studies evaluating process components in evidence-based psychotherapies. Both conceptual and empirical papers will be considered.
The guest editor of this special issue is Dr. Junko Tanaka-Matsumi.
For instructions to authors, please see http://www.educ.kyoto-u.ac.jp/cogpsy/psychologia/index.htm
Four copies of submissions should be sent to the guest editor at the address below.
Deadline for submission: 30 January, 2013
Submitted papers will undergo a process of peer review.
