New issue of PACJA available online

PACFA is pleased to announce that the latest issue of the Psychotherapy & Counselling Journal of Australia - our international, peer-reviewed academic journal - is now published and available to read online.   

The latest issue, Volume 9(2), contains a blend of book reviews and articles, from a fascinating snapshot of the counselling and psychotherapy workforce in Australia, to challenges in referring students to counselling in Singapore, and a review of David Roland’s The Power of Suffering.  

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all contributors, especially to our outgoing Editor, Rhys Price-Robertson, and our outgoing Acting Editor, Gávi Ansara, who co-edited Volume 9(2). 

PACFA congratulates PACJA Acting Editor Gávi Ansara on his expanded role in the Warsaw International Studies in Psychology program, at the University of Warsaw. From 2022, Gávi will be teaching sections of the Psychotherapy with Marginalised Populations course, which will now be a core unit, and hopes to continue teaching other elective courses in the program. PACFA will soon commence the recruitment process for a new PACJA Editor. 

PACJA was launched by the PACFA Research Committee in 2012, and promotes the development of research into the efficacy of counselling and psychotherapy, skills development, theory and knowledge building, and promotes the industry as widely as possible.
