Since the publication of its first issue in 1947, the American Journal of Psychotherapy (AJP) has long been a leader in the publication of eclectic articles for all psychotherapists. Transtheoretic in reach (offering information for psychotherapists across all theoretical foundations), the goal of AJP is to present an overview of the psychotherapies, subsuming a host of schools, techniques, and psychological modalities within the larger domain of clinical practice under broad themes including dynamic, behavioral, spiritual, and experiential.
The Journal offers varying viewpoints on the "who, when, why, and how" of psychotherapy. The Journal also serves as a conceptual bridge using the developmental process to reconcile major psychotherapeutic paradigms of the past and present.
It is the intent of the Editor-in-Chief to have the Journal's audience extend to the entire therapeutic community of practitioners and their patients.
