Empirically-supported interventions in psychology

New Content ItemPsicologia: Reflexão e Crítica | Psychology: Research and Review welcomes submissions to a new thematic series on empirically-supported interventions in psychology. This series will be edited by Dr Eduardo Remor, in collaboration with guest editors Dr Rik Crutzen (Maastricht University) and Dr Andrea Horn (University of Zürich).

Empirically-supported practice has become a central issue in modern psychology. The purpose of this series is to promote effective psychological practice across a wide range of life domains by applying empirically supported principles of psychological assessment, case formulation, therapeutic relationship, and intervention.

With this series we want to welcome studies in which the goal is to identify causal relations between interventions and outcomes. The series will showcase leading research and practice contributing to our understanding on creating sustained improvements in psychological practice across a wide range of psychology fields. 

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • The description of empirically-based interventions in clinical psychology, educational psychology, health psychology, neuropsychology and behavioral medicine fields.
  • The design, conduct and reporting of pilot and feasibility studies in the field of clinical psychology, educational psychology, health psychology, neuropsychology and behavioral medicine fields.

To be considered for this series, manuscripts should be submitted to the journal's online submission system by 31st October 2018. For further guidance on preparing and submitting your manuscript, please see our submission guidelines.

This thematic series will be partially sponsored by MCTI/CNPq N24/2015 grant (442852/2015-0). The article-processing charge will be waived for all accepted manuscripts.
