To understand, with the assistance of the Qualitative Research, different ways of
interpreting phenomena related to the different meanings clients and PCE therapists bring
to their experience,
To elaborate and deepen knowledge on Person-Centered and Experiential practice as an
effect of Qualitative Research,
To promote Qualitative Research in Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies
including all forms of qualitative empirical inquiry, advancements in qualitative methods,
and debates about methodology, theory, ethics and practice,
To enhance reflexivity in the Qualitative Research within Counselling and Psychotherapy and
more particularly in the research methodology and in the experience of interviewing, and
To invite a critical dialogue on the major significance of Qualitative Research in the field of
Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Types of papers: We are inviting theoretical and research-based contributions. We encourage
authors to critically evaluate Qualitative Research innovations in the field of Counselling and
Psychotherapy and offer a range of different perspectives and methodological understandings of
how Qualitative Research in Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies can be applied
within different settings. We are optimistic that authors will link theoretical developments in Person-
Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies and research to practice in specific interventions. We
finally welcome the authors to explore the impact of humanistic values of Person-Centered and
Experiential Psychotherapies in the Qualitative Research area.
