Abstract:
This research project is to ascertain, using a case study method, whether or not there is a need for counselling/psychotherapy services for visitors of intensive care patients. A brief background to the study is given and the researcher’s interest in the area is described, with a review of the literature relating to the topic. Terms used in the research question are defined theoretically and operationally. There is a detailed discussion of counselling/psychotherapy as used in this context with a description of the philosophies which have influenced the researcher’s approach to therapy. The methodology describes the process which the researcher went through to decide upon case study as the most appropriate research method in relation to her approach to therapy. The ‘case’ in this instance is the service as a whole. The method used is described, including how the counselling/psychotherapy service will be set up, what data will be produced and how that data will be analysed. The findings are a description of the course of events of setting the service up and the stories of researcher’s meetings with the people who used the service. There is a small quantitative element in the reporting of the number of people who took up the service. The discussion looks back critically over the preceding chapters, highlighting areas for concern, including limitations of the study, and discussing the findings. Any conclusions that can be drawn are then presented and recommendations for further research are made.
