CPR is an international, peer reviewed journal for BACP members and subscribers. It is published quarterly by Wiley and indexed on PsycINFO.
CPR is distinctly different from other research journals as it promotes reflexive writing. It encourages authors to write about their personal engagement with their research, and their relationship with the intellectual and cultural traditions that inform their work. Authors are asked to describe the real-world background to their study, in terms of practice setting, client and user experiences, type of intervention and organisational factors that influenced their work.
The journal is not just aimed at other researchers. Papers are written to be read by practitioners and those whose work shapes practice, such as policy makers, supervisors and managers. CPR articles are also of interest to those professions who may use counselling skills in their work, for example nurses, teachers, social workers and probation officers.
Individual BACP members can access the latest issue and an archive of articles back to Volume 1 through the Members’ Area. From your BACP Account page, click on the CPR online link in the left hand side menu bar.
Non-members can subscribe on the Wiley Online Library. Libraries and corporations are eligible for competitive low rates.
