Mission statement

PCEP coverPerson-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies seeks to create a dialogue among different parts of the person-centered and experiential tradition, to support, inform, and challenge each other and to stimulate their creativity and impact in a broader professional, scientific and political context. The mission of the journal is thus to encourage, and disseminate worldwide, new work on person-centered and experiential therapies, including philosophy, theory, practice, training and research. The journal will not give preference to any parts of the world, nor to any philosophical or theoretical emphases within these approaches, but will instead seek to increase our awareness and appreciation of each other's contributions, maintaining a spirit of inclusiveness to the whole person-centered and experiential field of psychotherapy and counseling.

Get online access

Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies is currently published by Routledge (Taylor & Francis). WAPCEPC members are entitled to full access to the online version of PCEP, which is hosted on our behalf by Routledge.

Indexed in PsycINFO

Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies has 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. 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.
