Style and language
For editors and reviewers to accurately assess the work presented in your manuscript you need to ensure the English language is of sufficient quality to be understood. If you need help with writing in English you should consider:
Article body must generally include the following headings:
Authors will need to include a separate 2-3 sentence summary labelled "counseling or therapeutic significance of this article" and should also include a word count with their article.
Manuscripts reporting results of quantitative or qualitative research generally should not exceed 25 double-spaced pages (including abstract, text, references, tables, and figures), with margins of at least 2 cm on all sides and a 12-point font. Concise manuscripts are favored over lengthier manuscripts, as long as quality is not compromised in abbreviating a paper. Papers do not following the journal guidelines will be rejected.
Times New Roman font (size 12) for the body,
(Size 12) for headings,
(Size 12) in bold form for the title,

Please use APA (American Psychological Association) style guidelines when preparing your paper, rather than any published articles or a sample copy.
Please use double quotation marks, except where ''a quotation is 'within' a quotation''. Note that long quotations should be indented without quotation marks.
All submitted manuscripts should follow the current APA (American Psychological Association) style.
Figures should be prepared in one of our preferred file formats: EPS, PS, JPEG, GIF, or Microsoft Word (DOC or DOCX). There should not be more than two shapes in the article.
Tables should reveal new information rather than duplicating what is in the text. Readers should be able to interpret the table without referring to the text. No more than 5 tables should be written in the article. Please prepare editable files.
