RIPPPO invites manuscripts for a special issue focused on psychotherapy research in psychotherapy training and mutual influences and implications.

Research in psychotherapy process could have a useful role in training programs, since it focuses on the fundamental role played by relational factors in contributing to the formation of a psychotherapist.

Therefore, the wider scope of this Special Issue is to bring these two perspectives: on one hand, the research psychotherapy process and, on the other hand, the training on psychotherapy, into dialogue.

We invite authors to propose papers in one of the following areas:

1. Theoretical considerations, meta-analysis and systematic reviews concerning the relationship between psychotherapy research and training in psychotherapy.

2. Process and outcome empirical researches.
