Counseling and Values

Spirituality, Ethics, and Religion in Counseling

Counseling and Values is the official journal of the Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Values in Counseling (ASERVIC), formerly the Association for Religious and Values Issues in Counseling (ARVIC), a division of the American Counseling Association.

Counseling and Values promotes theory, research, and practice on the intersection of religion, spirituality, and ethics in the counseling process, with a particular emphasis on the competent and ethical integration of religion and spirituality into counseling. The journal publishes and seeks articles on:
Research and Theory – Quantitative, qualitative, mixed method, and single case design manuscripts that provide empirical data related to ethical, religious, or spiritual issues in counseling.
Issues and Insights – Manuscripts that offer fresh information on philosophical, theoretical, and practical applications of ethical, religious, or spiritual issues in counseling.
Techniques for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Counseling (TSERC) – Manuscripts that focus on practical issues related to (a) the development or adaptation of existing techniques for working with spiritual, ethical, and/or religious values in counseling and/or (b) experience related to the effectiveness of techniques in work with clients and client systems.
