Integratus, the official journal of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association, is pleased to announce a “Rapid Response” call for manuscript submissions focused on Professional Ethics. This special call for manuscript submissions aims to highlight the development and publication of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association’s first professional ethics code.

Integratus is interested in manuscripts that provide insightful commentary about the new ethics code; describes unique ethical dilemmas and ethical decision-making models at the intersections of Catholic thought and professional practice; future directions of research; and identification of lingering ethical questions and debates for the field to address.
