Research participants wanted.

What is the purpose of this investigation?

This MSc study centres on a client’s perspective of relational depth (Mearns & Cooper 2005), identifying and exploring a deep relational moment in therapy, and in particular what it was that led to the client opening up to a relational moment and what occurrences in a client’s life may have been a precursor to enabling a moment of depth to be reached with a therapist. Relational Depth concept in psychotherapy research is still in its infancy although there has been a growing body of research carried out in the last few years, this research could expand this growing interest.

Would you like to take part in our research interview?

As part of an MSc Study, we are conducting 60-90 minute audio recorded Interviews asking participants (*Fully Qualified Person Centred Therapists) who have experienced a moment of Relational Depth in their own personal therapy to explore this experience with a view to pinpointing the source of these experiences.

How to take part?

Times and venue are flexible and can be arranged around the participant’s location and availability. Rooms can also be used within Strathclyde University, Glasgow.

Consultation about what PCT Scotland could offer to support members as practitioners had "Support with the BACP Accreditation process" coming high on the list. Your Coordinating Group is therefore delighted to announce that it has arranged with Mairi McMenamin to offer a two-part workshop on "Getting Ready for BAP Accreditation", with fully funded places available to PCT Scotland members.

•Fully funded places available only to PCT Scotland members
•A maximum of ten participants per two-part workshop - first to express interest, first served!
•Dates to be confirmed, but it is intended that Part 1 will take place in October 2015, and Part 2 in December 2015.
•A further pair of workshops may be offered in Spring 2016
•Glasgow location

The two-part workshop should help participants understand what they need to consider when applying for BACP accreditation (Part 1) then to reflect on their application prior to submission (Part 2). A 'coaching' approach will be used. There will be approximately two months between the two sessions to give participants ample time to apply what they've learned to their own Application for Accreditation.

Mairi is a person-centred therapist, supervisor and trainer and an accredited member of BACP. She has experience in offering Accreditation Workshops and supporting practitioners through the accreditation process.

If you are interseted in finding out more or would like to secure a place on the October/December workshop please e-mail Caroline Hickson on Finalised dates/venue will be notified as soon as they are confirmed.
