Ata: Journal of Psychotherapy Aotearoa New Zealand aims to promote psychotherapy in Aotearoa New Zealand, both in and beyond this country. It is (we are) committed to biculturalism; this is expressed in the structure of the journal, with two (sets of) editors and two editorial boards. Having established the journal within the profession, we want to promote psychotherapy as it is practiced and theorised in this country to the wider, international community.

The journal has been running since 2012. Before that, its predecessor Forum produced 15 single issue volumes over some 17 years.

Ata publishes in English, with abstracts in te reo Māori.

Please see our review policy and guidelines for submission.

Ata does not charge any fees for submission, publication or access to articles.
