Research topic: "A phenomenological study of the therapists’ experience of unconditional positive regard in brief therapies"

Dear all,
I am looking to recruit research participants who are (1) BACP/COSCA/any other relevant organisations’ accredited counsellors mainly practicing in the person-centered approach and (2) currently working or have worked in brief therapies ( i.e. contracts for 6 sessions maximum with a single client).
The focus of the research is mainly your experience of unconditional positive regard and how this intertwines with the time limit. I believe the person-centered approach deserves more discussion about its application in brief therapies.
The method of data collection will be in a form of semi-structured interview. The interview, which would be audio-recorded, will last approximately an hour (not more than 1.5hour) and will take at a place or time convenient to you. You will be asked to sign a consent form in advance of the interview.
My research has been granted ethical approval by Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethics Review Committee of the University of Edinburgh and I will adhere to the BACP ethical guidelines for research.
For more details or if you are interested, please contact ChunKi Tse, Matthew at s1571800@sms.ed.ac.uk for more information. Thank you!

Best wishes,
ChunKi Tse, Matthew

How do we bring ourselves more fully into the Therapeutic Relationship?
How can we more fully sense the world of our client?
How can we deepen our empathy? Empathy is often described as having both cognitive and affective aspects. Both are important, but they miss a valuable source of information that we have available – Our Bodies.
Empathy is often described as having both cognitive and affective aspects. Both are important, but they miss a valuable source of information that we have available – Our Bodies.
• How much do we listen to what our bodies are saying to us?
• How much do we listen to this source of knowledge about ourselves and our clients?
• How can we use our bodies to increase our empathy?
• How do the findings in neuroscience help us understand what we do when we are with clients?
In this workshop we will be looking at these, and other questions around what it means to be ‘Embodied’ in the therapeutic relationship. There will be opportunity for experiential exercises, input, and discussion. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Maggi has a background in Counselling, Bodywork, Yoga and Minfulness which has ignited her interest in this topic.

University of Aberdeen

The course is designed for experienced person-centred counsellors (trained to diploma level) who are looking for an opportunity for professional and career development. This course may appeal to practitioners who wish to develop their supervision skills and their theoretical understanding of supervision in a way that is consistent with the person-centred approach. Counsellors who are new to supervision practice as well as those who have experience as supervisors may apply.
The aim of this course is that on completion participants will feel sufficiently competent and confident to enter into supervision contracts with experienced counsellors and counsellors-in-training within organisations, voluntary settings and private practice. Integral to this aim are the following:
• Participants will attain a clear theoretical understanding of the processes implicit in the person-centred approach to supervision.
• They will develop further their understanding of person-centred theory in particular in the context of counselling-supervision.
• They will develop an awareness of ethical and practical issues related to supervision.
• They will develop the ability to assess their own work in critical and non-defensive ways and will identify areas for further professional development.
• They will have the opportunity to work with peers who are also experienced person-centred counsellors.

Early Bird Booking: £900.00 before 30/9/16

I AM WONDERING IF PCT SCOTLAND IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER TO LISTEN TO AND EXPRESS THE VIEWS OF THIS COMMUNITY. AS A FAIRLY NEW RECRUIT I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A FORUM TO HAVE MY VOICE HEARD AND TO LISTEN TO THE VIEWS OF MY COLLEAGUES. I WOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE ON THE ROLE OF SECRETARY FOR PCT SCOTLAND BUT DO NOT KNOW IF CONSTITUTIONALLY THIS IS DOABLE GIVEN THAT A DECISION HAS BEEN MADE BY THE MEMBERS TO WIND UP PCT SCOTLAND . I WOULD WELCOME THE OPINION OF MY COLLEAGUES IN THIS MATTER. "WHEN SOMETHING IS IMPORTANT ENOUGH, YOU DO IT EVEN IF THE ODDS ARE NOT IN YOUR FAVOR" - ELON MUSK.
