Rhys Price-Robertson, PhD, PACJA Editor.


I am excited to introduce this Special Issue of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Journal of Australia (PACJA) on working with trauma. This issue follows the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia’s (PACFA) successful 2019 conference on the same topic.

I invited Emeritus Professor Judy Atkinson to write a guest editorial for this issue because she has done much to raise awareness of those forms of trauma that are especially salient in Australia, a country grappling with the ongoing impacts of colonisation. Many other people have contributed to the development of this issue, including former PACJA Editor Dr. James Vicars and the PACJA Editorial Board. 

This issue marks the first time that PACJA has released two issues in the same year. This is a significant development, and part of a broader strategy to increasingly professionalise PACJA.
