Book Proposal Submissions


The American Counseling Association (ACA) is interested in reviewing proposals for books in counseling and human development. ACA publishes books written for professional counselors, clinicians, counselor educators, and counselors-in-training. Your proposal should be written with this audience in mind (i.e., it reflects that counseling is a professional relationship that empowers clients to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals; the terminology used is counseling-based; the majority of the citations/references are counseling resources).
