Do you think psychotherapy sessions with clients should be recorded during psychotherapy training?
Many thanks to those of you who have already taken part in this survey – 70 of you have taken part so far, which is great, but this represents less than 10% of those who have subscribed to getting this IAHIP mailing. If more of you can take part we could develop a more representative view of beliefs and experiences regarding recording sessions during psychotherapy training in the IAHIP community. The responses to date are already most informative; as a brief taster: so far, about half did record their psychotherapy sessions during training, the frequency of this practice depends on how long ago the training was, and there is an interesting range of opinion regarding the value and ethicality of this practice.
If you are a qualified psychotherapist, or are currently in psychotherapy training, you are eligible to take part in this survey – please do consider giving this your time. You are also encouraged to take part whether you have or have not recorded psychotherapy sessions during your training as one of the goals of this survey study is to get an indication of how often recording is done during psychotherapy training.
This research is being carried out by Dr. Aisling McMahon, Lecturer in Psychotherapy at Dublin City University (DCU). This brief survey should just take 5-10 minutes of your time.

With many thanks again for your interest and time,
p.s. If you receive this email and you are not eligible to take part in the survey (i.e., you have never been in training as a psychotherapist), a brief mail to Aisling at firstname.lastname@example.org stating this would be most helpful as this would clarify participant numbers, many thanks!
