Dear Accredited IAHIP Therapist,
My name is Shane Gallagher. I am commencing my final year of a Masters in Psychotherapy. I am also a student member of IAHIP. As part of my final year I am required to complete a thesis. I have chosen to investigate the impact of stress and burnout v’s compassion satisfaction, on accredited IAHIP psychotherapists. I have proposed to carry out both quantitative and qualitative research, using a demographic questionnaire, a stress scale, a quality of life scale and a small amount of follow up interviews. I am hoping that you and other accredited IAHIP therapists may be able to assist me, by following the link and completing the questionnaire it leads to. Obviously, the more members who respond, the more representative my results would be, to the population under examination. Participants will remain anonymous and no identifying information will be disclosed. Participation is of course voluntary and you may withdraw your participation at any time. Please click on the following link, for access to this questionnaire, which should take about seven minutes to complete:
Without participants, there would be no research and no findings, that add to and improve theory and practice. Accordingly, I would be very grateful for your participation in this research. Should anything be triggered in you, as a result of your participation in this research, please contact me directly (contact details provided, at end) if I can be of assistance, or bring to your own therapy. I enclose my contact details and am willing to address any queries or concerns, which you may have in relation to this matter.
