Title:
The Psychodynamic Counsellor's Experience of Becoming Accredited: A Qualitative Investigation
Authors:
Snaith, Jan
Abstract:
This research comprises of an in-depth qualitative small-scale investigation, based on semi-structured interviews with a sample of eight psychodynamic counsellors. The aim is to explore their experiences of counsellor accreditation, from the beginning of their training, on a Certificate course, through to becoming fully accredited. All participants in this study have completed the same training course but at different times and had been accredited within the last three years with either the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) or United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The choice of this enquiry was inspired by my personal experiences of accreditation and that of my colleagues, during a University based four year postgraduate psychodynamic counselling course. Analysis of the interviews attempts to reveal the significant themes relating to the participants' experiences of the accreditation process. The results are then discussed in some depth and conclusions are then drawn.
