Call for Papers
The Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Issues in Counseling (ALGBTIC), a division of the American Counseling Association (ACA) is inviting submissions for our next special edition of The Journal of LGBT Issues in Counseling. This edition will focus on Interdisciplinary insights into LGBTQ+ health: Implications in counseling. The intent of this special edition is to provide relevant information that will be of interest to counselors, counselor educators, and other counseling related professionals that work across a diversity of fields, including in schools, mental health settings, family agencies, and colleges and universities as well as to individuals working in fields of public health, advocacy, public policy or other areas particularly focused on LGBTQ+ overall health. Submissions should be related to working with the LGBTQ communities around issues pertinent to the intersectionality of race, gender-identity, age, ability, spirituality, mental health, and other attributes that contribute to a person’s identity and overall wellness. This journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that reflect our special focus and are pertinent to the health of sexual minority individuals and communities, and should focus in one of the following areas: (1) new research in the field of counseling, (2) a review of the literature that critically integrates previous work around a specific topic, (3) introduction of new techniques or innovation in service delivery within the counseling field, or (4) theoretical or conceptual pieces that reflect new ideas or new ways of integrating previously held ideas. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2018.
All manuscripts are submitted electronically through Scholar One, the portal for our publisher, Taylor & Francis, at: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wlco20/current.
