The International Journal of Forensic Psychotherapy (IJFP) is a brand-new journal launched in 2019. It is published in conjunction with the International Association for Forensic Psychotherapy and its avowed aim is to “Re-humanise the de-humanised”.

This will be a leading-edge journal that promotes the health of offenders and victims through the use of psychotherapeutic understanding, risk assessment, and treatment techniques, and will also advance understanding about forensic psychotherapeutic practice.
