Title:
Community Psychiatric Nurses’ perception of using counselling and psychotherapy in practice: A phenomenological investigation
Authors:

Abstract:
The research question evolved from the researcher’s wish to ask other Community Psychiatric Nurses (CPNs) what their perception was of using counselling/psychotherapy in their practice. A phenomenological research approach was used in order to return as closely as possible to what made up the nature of the enquiry itself. Four interviews were taped, transcribed and analysed using Giorgi’s (1985) Phenomenological method. The sample consisted of CPNs who had successfully completed counselling/psychotherapy training to degree level and were practising in a variety of community mental health settings. It was found that whilst finding the use of counselling/psychotherapy useful, it was difficult to put into practice; CPNs felt torn and adapted their use of counselling/psychotherapy to fit their practice. Phenomenologic instrumentation is discussed as a limitation in this study, with particular reference to reliability, bias and contradictions. Areas of future research are presented.
