News, publications, and research

The Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia produces a range of publications to inform counsellors and psychotherapists about the latest developments in their profession and advance the evidence base for counselling and psychotherapy. 

PACFA produces a monthly newsletter; an international peer-reviewed journal, the Psychotherapy and Counselling Journal of Australia; and the magazine Psychotherapy and Counselling Today. 

PACFA’s research projects include literature reviews on the effectiveness of counselling and psychotherapy modalities, and research papers. 

In 2016 PACFA published its first book Psychotherapy and Counselling: Reflections on Practice, showcasing the diversity of modalities in the field of psychotherapy and counselling, through stories and case studies from 33 practitioners. This book is no longer available for purchase.
