The Counseling Psychologist Resources Relevant to Black Lives Matter, Current Events, and Coronavirus – June, 2020

We are thrilled to report that updated academic journal impact factors were released last week, and The Counseling Psychologist achieved its highest impact factor ever: 2.263 (up from 1.518 last year). TCP is now ranked 38/84 in the Applied Psychology category (up from 46 last year). The current Impact Factor is based on the articles published in 2017 and 2018 that were cited in journals in 2019. These are articles published under the outstanding editorship of our own Dr. Lydia Buki, and with the support of our Department of Educational and Psychological Studies. Kudos to you Dr. Buki, and congratulations to TCP!

Below, you will find a list of articles published in TCP that may serve as a resource at this critical juncture in our societal context. Articles are organized by the following topics: Radical healing in communities of color; dismantling oppressive systems; Black Lives Matter; social justice; teaching and mentoring to promote race dialogues and social justice; racial attitudes; White attitudes, privilege, and multicultural development; therapy and supervision; and telehealth.
