We are delighted to announce that Psychotherapy Excellence and Routledge, the largest publisher of psychotherapy and counselling research publications globally, have reached an agreement to trial academic access for the profession.
I am writing to you about an exciting announcement and to ask for your full support.
As a fellow practitioner, I am very aware of the widespread frustration amongst therapists about the challenges we face in gaining access to the research we need.
Psychotherapy Excellence and Routledge, the largest publisher of psychotherapy and counselling research publications globally, have reached an agreement to trial academic access for the profession.
It has been agreed that we will initially open up access to a selection of academic articles via Psychotherapy Excellence CPD Online. Psychotherapy Excellence CPD Online is an online subscription based platform that gives practitioners access to online webcasts with world leading therapists across modalities and topics.
We will first pilot this initiative with about 20 articles related to the subject of Psychotherapy Excellence's latest webcast series 'Men and therapy - key approaches to working with men'. The aim of the trial is to gauge the interest that exists for some form of ongoing academic access amongst practicing psychotherapists and counsellors across a range of topics and modalities.
Access to Routledge online journal content will be a huge opportunity for you and the profession, and I am asking you to support this initiative by subscribing to the pilot.
