International Journal of Philosophical Practice


The National Philosophical Counseling Association (NPCA), formerly the American Society for Philosophy, Counseling, and Psychotherapy (ASPCP), is the first association of philosophical counseling in the United States.   For more than two decades, the NPCA has provided a national forum for the development, publication, and delivery of the literature on philosophical counseling, including the preeminent journal of philosophical counseling, the International Journal of Philosophical Practice (IJPP).  The NPCA has also been the source of standards of practice in the U.S., including a code of ethics and certification standards.
