The Video Journal of Counseling and Therapy

Video Journal of Counseling and Therapy


For students, faculty, and practitioners of counseling and therapy, it can be difficult to locate resources that reflect the ever-evolving nature of the field. Attending professional conferences and events is one of the best ways to stay abreast of the latest research and best practices, but doing so is time-consuming and often cost-prohibitive.

The Video Journal of Counseling and Therapy addresses these concerns by gathering the field’s top conferences into one convenient online database. This definitive streaming video collection shares the latest in research and best practice methods in the fields of counseling, mental health, and psychology. Much like traditional, text-based academic journals, the collection provides the most up-to-date content in counseling and psychology. Presentations featuring studies, trends, techniques, and outcomes are added to the collection the same year they occur, so students and professors can watch as if they were in attendance, without the cost of travel or conference fees.
