About This Journal
All manuscripts received are blind peer reviewed. Because of the clinical focus of the journal, authors are encouraged to address the conceptual methodology underlying the research and to describe the intervention methods employed. Although detailed reviews of literature are accepted, reviewers tend to appreciate manuscripts with a very strong introduction describing the purpose of the study, a well described conceptual framework, concise presentation of findings, and a thorough discussion of results that are applicable to practicing financial therapists, financial counselors, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and others who regularly work in clinical settings.
