Thank you for your interest in writing for TherapyAudiobooks.com, an online platform visited by many thousands of readers each month from over 150 countries. We publish articles that engage people personally and professionally and are seeking original pieces that take fresh perspectives on new and traditional ideas.

We are open to most articles but have set some simple outlines to ensure we provide the best match for both our readers and your message. If you need inspiration, here are a few topics that we would be interested in:

Current issues in addictions: gambling, internet, sex & love, Mindfulness and psychotherapy, Race, ethnicity, religion, culture, Group therapy, Eating disorders, Therapist burnout, Medication and psychotherapy.
 
We welcome contributions from a wide range of theoretical, psychological and psychotherapeutic perspectives. We also occasionally publish relevant book chapters, poetry, book and movie reviews related to psychotherapy themes.

Writing Guidelines:

We are seeking writing on TherapyAudiobooks.com that is relatively free of jargon, more conversational, often using a story-telling format that includes case vignettes. We look for writing styles that are informal, yet professional, including the use of first person, and in an active voice.

We are especially interested in articles that include the experience of the therapist. Most of the articles we publish are about 4000 words, but we do accept briefer articles of about 2000 words, as well as longer articles up to 8000 words. Photos and other material that enhance the quality of the material are welcome.

References to research, studies, and sources may be relevant to your piece, but please use only when necessary and avoid extensive literature reviews. Note that we use footnotes for citations rather than references, and these should be used only when absolutely necessary, and kept to a minimum.

Confidentiality and Ethics:

Names and identifying information of all clients mentioned in case material should be sufficiently changed to protect their confidentiality and privacy in accordance with respective professional association guidelines for counsellors, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. Please check with us regarding questions for disguising client identities and confidentiality concerns. All works should abide by the ethical guidelines of respective professional organisations as well.
