A heuristic enquiry on the experience of being on a psychotherapy training course, for the person who is a trainee psychotherapist.

Abstract:
This study is qualitative in approach; a heuristic enquiry is implemented to investigate the trainee psychotherapist’s lived experience of being on a psychotherapy training course. A brief description of psychotherapy is discussed and research methods are compared and contrasted. The lack of past studies incorporating the subjectivity of participants is discussed in this area of training psychotherapists. A focus on the importance and validity of subjective experience is offered to the reader, and in chapter two past studies and literature are examined as further sources of interest. The researcher’s own subjective experience of the phenomena is explored in an attempt to search for shared likenesses with the participants. All six participants were randomly selected and informally interviewed and tape-recorded. Transcriptions of the tapes revealed shared experiences of the phenomena which are examined in chapter five. In the final chapter, there is a discussion of the findings and a critical analysis of the method is given with particular reference to a post-modernist perspective. Recommendations for further research is offered and explored.
