Counselling Connections Across Australia is the national journal of the Christian Counsellors Association of Australia Inc. Published annually, we seek to promote the responsible integration of faith and practice and to encourage and promote excellence in counselling and psychotherapy.
Our intentions in producing a journal are fourfold:
  1. To publicise and promote Christian Counsellors Association of Australia (CCAA) to the professional counselling community.
  2. To develop the practice and understanding of Counselling and Psychotherapy through research and reflection on theory and clinical experience.
  3. To provide an avenue for appropriate written expression to the Christian counselling fraternity.
  4. To express the values, vision and mission of CCAA.
