Primary Sources in Counseling and Psychology

Share this on social media:

SAGE Publications and Alexander Street Press are working together to create a new database, Primary Sources in Counseling and Psychology, 1950 to Present.

The database, which will be ready for beta testing later in the year, is expected to provide therapists, clients, researchers, and students with casebooks, handbooks, encyclopedia entries, transcripts, audio and video sessions, as well as raw narratives and other resources. It will include more than 2,000 hours of full-text transcripts and audio files of real therapy sessions, almost 40,000 pages of first-person accounts. There will also be 25,000 pages of major reference works in psychology, psychotherapy, human services, counselling, and social work.

In addition, the publishers promise robust semantic search capabilities and deep indexing, which will index the material by 40+ separate variables.

Once it has been launched the database will be available online either through a one-time purchase of perpetual rights or by annual subscription.
