WAPCEPC statement: Research evidence about effectiveness of PCE Psychotherapy

In November 2006 the Gemeinsame Bundesausschuss, the German clinical advisory body, recommended that patients in Germany with mental health needs should not be reimbursed by health-insurance for receiving person-centered psychotherapy (PCEP).

In support of our colleagues of the GwG, the WA formulated a statement to the German Health Minister, outlining the scientific reasons why this recommendation should be re-considered.

The Health Minister has now rejected the original decision and we look forward to hearing what is going to happen next.

The WA statement was written by Robert Elliott and Jeffrey Cornelius-White in cooperation with Michael Behr and Juergen Kriz.

PCEP indexed in PsycINFO

Building on significant increases in readership over the past two years, Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies has now been accepted for coverage in PsycINFO, the abstracting and indexing service of the American Psychological Association. PsycINFO is the most important abstracting service in the social sciences and is distributed worldwide, primarily via the PsycINFO online database, but also in the form of Psychological Abstracts. Journals are selected for coverage if they are archival (that is, publish articles of cumulative, lasting value), scholarly, peer-reviewed, regularly published, and include English language titles, abstracts and keywords. The PsycINFO database includes more than 2.3 million records, dating back to 1880, and is updated weekly.

Although over 2000 journals are covered, only about half are covered completely. Thus, we are pleased to report that PCEP will receive 100% coverage. Furthermore, the coverage will be retroactive to the journal's 2002 inception, meaning that abstracts of all articles published to date in PCEP will be indexed and available.

Clearly, this is an important step toward wider dissemination and influence for PCEP, one that has been in the planning stage for some time. It will result in a significantly greater visibility and status for the journal, and will directly benefit authors whose universities use indexing as a measure of scientific quality.
