Special Issue on Sexual Behavior and Disorders

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the Journal of Rational-Emotive and Cognitive-Behavior Therapy on “RE/CBT for the treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders.”

The Journal of Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavior Therapies (JRE & CBT), a distinguished academic, peer reviewed, scientific journal, announces a call for papers for a special issue devoted to the cognitive behavior therapy for pathologies or adversities related to sexuality, gender, or sexual functioning. It will also consider articles dealing with theories of sexuality, gender, and sexual pathology from an RE/CBT point of view.
The Journal is one of the oldest and traditional journals in the field of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, officially started in 1966 under the name of Rational Living, published by the Albert Ellis Institute. Albert Ellis was the author of the Encyclopedia of Sexual Behavior, and he wrote extensively on sexual dysfunctions, disorders, and their treatment. To continue this tradition, The Journal of Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavior Therapies will devoted a special issue to this topic.
The JRE & CBT promotes the scientist-practitioner paradigm. The journal is inviting manuscripts for a special issue on rational emotive and cognitive behavioral therapy that explore foundational cognitive behavioral science as it applies to this area. Specifically, the journal is inviting manuscripts that focus on the rigorous application of research using rational emotive, cognitive-behavioral, and associated frameworks (e.g., Rational Emotive Behavioral, Cognitive Behavior therapy, meaning Constructs, etc.). We seek manuscripts presenting:
• Empirical intervention studies in cognitive behavioral approaches to coaching;
• Empirically-based case studies and single subject studies;
• Quantitative and qualitative research reviews and theoretical papers on innovative techniques and procedures.
• Theoretical manuscripts on the topic.
• Literature reviews and meta-analytic reviews of treatments.
Journal’s submission guidelines can be found on the right hand side of this page.
Prospective authors need to specify the title of the special issue in the subject and in the cover letter of their submission. All contributions to the special issue will be fully refereed according to the usual standards of the journal.
Deadline for the special issue is February 1, 2016.
Perspective authors can address any questions concerning whether a manuscript is appropriate for this special issue to the special issue guest editor:
Mike Abrams, Ph.D.

    Aims and Scope


    The Journal of Rational-Emotive and Cognitive Behavior Therapy is an international journal that publishes scholarly original papers concerning Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), behavior therapy, cognitive-behavioral hypnosis, and hypnotherapy, clinical and counseling psychology, psychiatry, mental health counseling, and allied areas of science and practice. The journal encourages scholarly debate amongst professionals involved in practice, theory, research, and training in all areas of scholarship relevant to REBT and CBT. The Journal is particularly interested in articles that define clinical practice and research and theoretical articles that have direct clinical applications. The Journal seeks theoretical discussions and literature reviews on the cognitive bases of the development and alleviation of emotional, behavioral, interpersonal, personality, and addictive disorders. We consider submissions on the applications of REBT and CBT to new areas of practice and client populations. The Journal considers the term Cognitive Behavior Therapy to represent a generic, overriding category or school of psychotherapy approaches that includes many different theories and techniques. The journals encourages research that clearly identifies the specific hypothetical constructs and techniques being measured, tested, and discussed, and the comparison of the relative influence of different cognitive processes, constructs, and techniques  on emotional and behavioral disturbance. The Journal provides a timely introduction to unexplored avenues on the cutting edge of REBT and CBT research, theory, and practice.

    The Journal  publishes:

    discussions of the philosophical foundations of psychotherapies


    theoretical articles

    original outcome research articles

    brief research reports

    original research on the support of theoretical models

    development of scales to assess cognitive and affective constructs

    research reviews

    clinical practice reviews

    empirically-based case studies

    descriptions of innovative therapeutic techniques and procedures

    advances in clinical training

    literature reviews

    book reviews

    Under the guidance of an expanded, international editorial board consisting of acknowledged leaders in the field, the journal disseminates current, valuable information to researchers and practitioners in psychology, psychotherapy, psychiatry, mental health counseling, social work, education, and related fields.

    Manuscripts usually are less than 35 pages, double-spaced, and using 11 or 12-point font. If the authors need more space to communicate their research or ideas, they should write to the editors to discuss this issue and provide a rationale why more than the commended number of pages is needed.
