This international journal is published with the goal of providing mental health professionals and graduate students in counseling with scholarship that addresses theory, research, and hands-on creative interventions in counseling practice.  See the History of ACC for information on the birth of this journal. Authors include mental health professionals and graduate students in community counseling, school counseling, psychology, expressive therapies, psychiatry, social work, and others.

Each issue includes manuscripts that illustrate a wide range of creative interests. We invite you to submit manuscripts that reflect the inclusive, diverse, and relational goals of the journal. Manuscripts undergo a peer review process and reference such modalities as music, literature, theatre, drama, art, dance, and others. We are also interested in receiving submissions that describe energy psychologies and other complementary and alternative therapies that may impact our mental and physical well-being. Additionally, we welcome articles for our special feature columns on Creative Interventions, Creativity and the Cinema, Perspectives, and  our Book Review column, Creativity and Literature.
