Annual European psychotherapy trainee essay prize

The European Journal of Psychotherapy and Counselling (EJPC) is conducting its first annual European psychotherapy trainee essay prize. This competition offers an exceptional opportunity for trainees and students to have their dissertations, coursework or essays published in a respected peer-reviewed journal.

The prize is open to anyone from a psychotherapy, psychotherapeutic counselling, counselling or psychoanalytic training organisation/professional body based primarily in Europe.

Here are some of the criteria for submission:

  • Eligible submissions should be unpublished original assignments, coursework, essays, dissertations or theses, which can be extended or shortened as needed.
  • Trainees or students may submit their work either while they're still in training or within the first year after qualifying.
  • Papers should be between 4,000 to 5,000 words, not including references, abstract and bios.
  • Authors should follow the submission guidelines provided on the EJPC page.

Up to six papers will be selected for publication in the EJPC following the journal's peer review process, with the research being practice-based, theoretical or empirical in nature.

Entries can be submitted via the submission page. Follow the usual author submission instructions in the portal and then select 'The Annual European Psychotherapy Training Essay Prize'.

The deadline for submissions is 31 July 2024.
