The Indonesian Journal of Educational Counseling (IJEC) is managed by the Guidance and Counseling Program, Faculty of Teacher Training and Education of Universitas Mathla’ul Anwar Banten. The aim of IJEC is to publish works that set trends and provoke fresh thought and innovation in the practice and understanding of counseling, psychotherapy, and guidance to strengthen education. The journal seeks to communicate, enrich and advance theory, research, policy and practice in these fields. Manuscripts are published under four broad headings: (1) psychology of education, (2) counseling and psychotherapy in educational institutions, (3) guidance and development, and (4) cross-disciplinary issues relevant to guidance and counseling. IJEC was published regularly twice a year, in January and July.
