The Cognitive Behaviour Therapist (tCBT)
The focus of tCBT is to "enhance and support member's professional development through the dissemination of innovation and good practice
from within the cognitive and behavioural communities, " according to co-editor, Michael Townend (above)
tCBT has an international editorial board and editorial team of leading clinicians and academics.
The new journal is the sister journal to Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BCP).
tCBT will publish
papers which describe new developments
articles that are practice focussed and detail clinical interventions
research reports concerning the practice of cognitive behaviour therapy
detailed case reports
audits that are relevant to practice and
reviews of clinical scales.
tCBT will publish papers that have an education, training or supervision focus and will also
include reviews of recently published literature with commentary and debate of direct relevance
It will have themed editions and all submissions will be peer reviewed in the usual way,
consistent with the mission statement that can be found in the publications section.
tCBT will quickly publicise paper and timulate professional debate in electronic format
via the Cambridge University Press' (CUP) web site. It will also make use of the potential
of the internet through technology enhanced dissemination of articles that include additional
informative multi media materials. It will also offer the facility for real time commentary on papers
(following a rapid moderation process). We hope this will be a popular feature and enable debate
from the wide membership that makes up the association. We hope this will be both fun, stimulating
