Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry (EHPP) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research reports, reviews, essays, commentaries, and case reports examining the ethical ramifications of unjust practices in psychiatry and psychology. As the official publication of the International Society of Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry (ISEPP), it supports ISEPP’s mission to use the standards of scientific inquiry and critical reasoning to address the ethics of psychology and psychiatry.

EHPP invites submissions from a range of disciplines, including health, humanistic, and indigenous psychology, child/adolescent, forensic, developmental, and geriatric psychiatry, social work, mental health counseling, and couple and family therapy. Mental health practices draw on and impact virtually every aspect of our society, including medicine, business, education, law, politics, and media. Thus, we welcome submissions from a broad range of specialties that critically examine the effects of these practices on practitioners, service users, and society as a whole.

EHPP fills a niche untouched by other psychology and psychiatry journals. Past issues have included articles examining the withdrawal effects of Prozac and Paxil, holistic preparation of soldiers for combat, psychiatric medicating of children, marketing tactics of pharmaceutical companies, involuntary psychiatric treatment, brain neuroplasticity, and the benefits of non-pharmacological intervention. EHPP publishes articles that employ both quantitative and qualitative methodologies as well as lived experience accounts and critical analyses. EHPP seeks to provide a space for high quality scholarship, ethical discourse, and the creation of new knowledge that contributes to a more just and humane society.

"An absolutely essential journal for psychology and related fields. Every professional should read it."
- Dorothy Rowe, PhD, United Kingdom

"A godsend for independent-thinking professionals who want to help their clients become self-reliant human beings."
- Clemmont E. Vontress, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Counseling, George Washington University

"I am incredibly excited about ICSPP's journal which fills a critical gap. Nothing else like this exists. I am honored to be on the board with such esteemed and advanced-thinking individuals."
- Candace Pert, PhD, Research Professor, Georgetown University Medical Center
