Call for Monographs
Connecting Soul, Spirit, Mind, and Body:
A Collection of Spiritual and Religious Practices in Counseling
A few years ago, a call was sent out for monographs for a tentative book. At the request of the members of ASERVIC, we are excited to resume this project. Submitted monographs will be peer-reviewed for an on-line article submission. We will continue the guidelines set forth for the current collection but expand to include monographs on world religions and practices:
Those who submitted monographs previously will be contacted to determine interest in continuing with this project. There is no need to re-submit as all monographs have been located.
Manuscript format and content requirements:
1. Author’s full name, credentials, academic or agency affiliation, e-mail, phone, and two sentences of author information.
2. Manuscript should include:
Theoretical foundation and relevant research.

3. Suggested Resources (Print and/or internet resources for counselor to find information to develop further expertise and/or find training to develop competence in addressing the experience or using the practice in counseling);
