This is our 26th Year of Publication!

As a result of decisions made in the EAP Governing Board, Oct. 2020, all EAP National, European-Wide and 'Ordinary' Organisations, including European Accredited Psychotherapy Training Institutes (EAPTIs), will now get a digital copy of each issue of the e-Journal, as a part of their 2021 EAP membership fees, and can forward this onwards to all their members.  If you are an EAP member and have not received a copy, contact us. 
This will increase the readership of the Journal to a potential of (about) 120,000 European psychotherapists. Printed copies will also be available to members of these organisations for a (cost-price-plus) amount, hopefully around €10.00 (inc. p&p).

We also have a series of articles in a 'Special On-line Issue' on the topic of "Psychotherapy vs. Spirituality", available free of charge: click on the box: 
"Read Current Online Articles Here" (top of left-hand, side-bar of this website).

We also publish some articles online, in advance of print publication.
These are available (free) for you to download - given the time limits! 
There will be other articles available soon.

The IJP was founded in 1996.  
The IJP is published by the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP). 
We were printing about 500 copies per issue, with three issues a year, in March, July and November until 2019. Since then, we started moving towards publishing much more of an online e-Journal and reducing the number of printed copies.  Our readership should now increase to potentially (about) 120,000 readers.

Back issues (printed copies) and PDF files of the whole issue, of issues from 2005, plus PDF files of all the different individual articles (from 2005), are available as automatic downloads from the CATALOGUE: (left-hand, side-bar) using PayPal.
