The Therapist is open to receiving expert written manuscripts, composed in language that is easy to understand and appealing to mental health professionals. The Therapist is a peer-reviewed professional magazine, and all submissions are reviewed by CAMFT's Editorial Advisory Council. Below are the categories of articles currently being accepted for publication. Please follow the guidelines below, and send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Editorial Advisory Council will accept submissions that correspond to one of three categories: Professional Exchange, The Business of Practice: Member Spotlight, or Letter to the Editor. Submissions should be sent via e-mail to email@example.com as an attachment (preferably Microsoft Word), or snail-mailed to: Editorial Advisory Council, CAMFT, 7901 Raytheon Road, San Diego, CA, 92111.
Professional Exchange Articles are 2,000-3,000 word submissions relevant to clinical theory and practice that contain the best available, current, scientific evidence to support the topic being discussed. Professional exchange submissions must include peer reviewed citations, learning objectives, and questions to be used for Continuing Education (CE) credits. Additional supplemental materials are welcome. A short (100 word) biography and picture of the author(s) should also be included with the submission.
The Business of Practice: Member Spotlight articles highlight CAMFT members and their clinical business practices. Submissions should be 750 – 1000 words in length and follow the question and answer format of the Business of Practice: Member Spotlight Questionnaire. Member Spotlight submissions should both highlight the CAMFT member’s work and provide relevant information for fellow therapists and CAMFT members about the variety of ways to work in mental health. To be considered for Member Spotlight, fill out the Member Spotlight Questionnaire by clicking here, and email your completed questionnaire to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Letters to the Editor should be no more than 250 words pertaining to an article appearing within the last six months of the most recent issue. Letters may be edited for length and clarity. Letters to the Editor reflect the views of the writers and not CAMFT's views.
The following list of potential topics is meant to be helpful but not all-encompassing. If you wish to write a Professional Exchange article but are not sure if the topic is appropriate for The Therapist, simply send an inquiry to email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your submission!
