The Professional Counselor

The Professional Counselor (TPC) is the official, peer-reviewed, open source, electronic journal of the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) dedicated to research and commentary on empirical, theoretical and innovative topics in the field of professional counseling and related areas. This is not your average, run-of-the-mill journal. The goal was to create an exciting new resource for the counseling profession with relevant material and interactive features.

TPC publishes original manuscripts relating to: mental and behavioral health counseling; school counseling; career counseling; couples, marriage, and family counseling; counseling supervision; theory development; professional counseling ethics; international counseling and multicultural issues; program applications; and integrative reviews from counseling and related fields.

The intended audience of the TPC journal includes National Certified Counselors, counselor educators, mental health practitioners, graduate students, researchers, supervisors, and the public. The content is resourceful, the format is interactive and the reach is worldwide. We hope you enjoy TPC.
