International Journal of Psychotherapy (IJP) is the official journal and flagship of the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP), which was formed in 1990. The principles of the EAP and of the journal are laid down in the EAP's Strasbourg Declaration (see below). The journal will be a major cross-orientational vehicle, contributing to the wider debate about the future of psychotherapy and reflecting the internal dialogue within European psychotherapy and its wider relations with the rest of the world. This new concept combines internal and external relevance, addressing cross-orientational issues and striking a balance between inclusiveness and differentiation, with no hidden bias towards either integration or differentiation. Papers are invited that will be characteristically psychotherapeutic or relevant to psychotherapy, embodying the spirit of psychotherapy's autonomous uniqueness, regardless of orientation. IJP will publish articles which make connections or comparisons between different themes relevant to psychotherapy, for example between psychotherapy and its social, scientific, political, cultural and religious contexts; between clinical practice and its wider setting; or any significant connections or comparison that facilitates its development, differentiation and inclusiveness. IJP is committed to a policy of equality of opportunity and welcomes contributions which address issues such as ethnicity, gender, age, culture, disability, sexual orientation, religious and political persuasion, and social and economic status. "The Strasbourg Declaration" "Psychotherapy is an independent scientific discipline, the practice of which amounts to an independent and free profession. Training in psychotherapy takes place at an advanced, qualified, and scientific level. The multiplicity of methods in psychotherapy is assured and guaranteed. In a process of psychotherapy, training is carried out in full and includes theory, self-experience and practice under supervision. Adequate knowledge is gained of further processes of psychotherapy. Access to training is through various preliminary qualifications, in particular in human and social sciences.".
