About the Journal
The Journal was founded in 2003 in order to become the official organ of the European Network of Brief Strategic and Systemic Therapy. In 2008 the network has been renamed Brief Strategic and Systemic Word Network. Editor in Chief is Prof. Giorgio Nardone. Issued once a year, the Journal publishes a wide variety of articles relevant to the field of brief strategic and systemic therapy, subdivided into different sections so as to divulge the most significant contributions carried out by the most-worthy European and non-European researchers and practitioners. We strive to foster interactions among training, practice, theory, and research because all are essential to psychotherapy. Authors are asked to submit theoretical contributions, research studies, novel ideas, the controversial, as well as examples of practice-relevant issues that would stimulate other theorists, researchers, and/or practitioners. We include the widest scope of applications to inform our readers. Our hope is that this initiative will help grow and develop not only the Art of Brief Strategic and Systemic Therapy but all those who choose this splendid Art as their own profession and life style.
