Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the Journal of Rational-Emotive and Cognitive-Behavior Therapy on “Cognitive therapies focusing on grief and bereavement following a loss through death.“
The Journal of Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavior Therapies, a distinguished academic, peer reviewed, scientific journal, announces a call for papers for a special issue devoted to cognitive behavior therapy for grief and bereavement following a loss through death. The Journal is one of the oldest and traditional journals in the field of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, officially started in 1966 under the name of Rational Living, published by the Albert Ellis Institute. Apart from a number of articles throughout the years discussing cognitive grief therapy (i.e. Bowlen et al ,2004; Doyle, 2010; Malkinson and Ellis, 1996; Malkinson & Brask-Rustad, 2010) there has been no special issue of The Journal of Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavior Therapies devoted to the contribution of CBT to this important subject
The main framework of the JRE&CBT has been represented by the scientist-practitioner paradigm. The journal is inviting manuscripts for a special issue on cognitive behavioral grief therapy that explore foundational cognitive behavioral science as it applies to this area. Specifically, the journal is inviting manuscripts that focus on the rigorous application of research using cognitive-behavioral and associated frameworks (e.g., Rational Emotive Behavioral, Cognitive Behavior therapy, Meaning Construction, EMDR, etc.). We seek manuscripts presenting:
- Empirical intervention studies in cognitive behavioral approaches to grief therapy.
- Empirically-based case studies and single subject design studies.
- Quantitative and qualitative research reviews and theoretical papers on innovative techniques and procedures.
Journal’s submission guidelines can be found on its web page http://www.springer.com/psychology/journal/10942. Prospective authors need to specify the title of the special issue in the subject and in the cover letter of their submission. All contributions to the special issue will be fully refereed according to the usual standards of the journal. Deadline for the special issue is October 1, 2015.
