The Counseling and Family Therapy Scholarship Review (CFTSR) is an open-access, peer-reviewed, online journal focused on promoting insights of diverse cultural-contextual perspectives to stretch the range of information available for the practice of counseling and systemic psychotherapy. The Scholarship Review is a platform for unique perspectives on conventional knowledge and marginalized domains of information. Faculty, private practice clinicians, non-profit social services staff and graduate students are invited to submit literature reviews, proposed advancements to counseling and systemic theory, social research, clinical case write-ups, personal narratives, concerns of social ethics, contemporary social trends, predictions for future biopsychosocial trends, socio-political commentaries, poetry and short stories.

The Scholarship Review invites faculty, private practice clinicians, non-profit social services staff and graduate students to submit their original work for publication in our peer-reviewed online journal. We invite papers on a wide range of topics relevant to counseling and family therapy.

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the "Submit Works" link on the right-hand menu bar.
