ASSOCIATE AND OTHER AFFILIATE CATEGORIES

 

1.   Pursuant to Article 5(h) of the Company’s Memorandum & Articles of Association, the Governing Body has established the following categories of association or affiliation with the Company.


2.   The six categories shall be known as:

a)   Certified Associates

b)   Pre-Accredited Associates

c)   Student Associates

d)   Friends

e)   Affiliate Organisations

f)   Retired Member


3.    Certified Associates

3.1   Application for acceptance as a Certified Associate is open to those who provide evidence to the Association that they

(i)   have, normally within the previous five years, graduated from a psychotherapy training course which has been formally recognised by the Association as meeting all the training standards set out in Bye Law 6;

(ii)   have the intention of becoming an accredited member of the Association on meeting the post-course practicum requirements set out in Bye Law 11;

(iii)   are practising as a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist under regular supervision and are covered by a policy of insurance for professional indemnity risks;

(iv)   consent to be governed by the IAHIP Codes of Ethics and Practice and to be subject to the Complaints Procedure;

(v)   provide recommendations from their current supervisor and from an accredited member of IAHIP.

 

3.2   Acceptance of a person as a Certified Associate shall not be construed in any way as pre-empting the eventual decision of the Association regarding their suitability for accreditation.  Certified Associates may NOT represent themselves as accredited members of the Association or use the letters IAHIP as part of their advertising material or stationery.  (Any breach of this prohibition shall provide grounds for withdrawal of certified associate status and for refusal of accreditation and membership of the Association if and when a Certified Associate applies for accreditation.)  


3.3   If the Certified Associate does not apply for accreditation within five years of their completion of their training, their associate status will lapse.


3.4   Certified Associates shall be awarded the IAHIP Certificate of Professional Training in Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy and shall have the following rights:

◊     to represent themselves as Certified Associates of the Association

◊     to attend AGMs and EGMs (without voting rights)

◊     to be on a selected mailing list

◊     to receive Inside Out Journal

◊     to receive the IAHIP newsletter

◊     to be notified of selected events, seminars, workshops, lectures, etc. being organised by IAHIP

◊     to receive discount on fees for attendance at such events.


4.    Pre-Accredited Associates

4.1   Application for acceptance as a Pre-accredited Associate is open to those who

(i)   have grounds to believe that they have graduated, normally within the previous five years, from a psychotherapy training course which meets all the requirements of Phase 1 of psychotherapy training specified by Bye Law 11 as necessary for eventual accreditation and membership of the Association;

(ii)   have the intention of becoming accredited members of IAHIP and of meeting the requirements set out in Bye Law 11  for those completing the post-course practicum period provided for in those respective Bye Laws of the Association;

(iii)   are practising as a humanistic and integrative psychotherapist under regular supervision and are covered by a policy of insurance for professional indemnity risks;

(iv)   consent to be governed by the IAHIP Codes of Ethics and Practice and to be subject to the Complaints Procedure as if they were accredited members. (However, as they are not accredited members whose training and practice has been assessed and approved by the Association, nothing shall oblige the Association to respond to or deal with any complaint against a Pre-accredited Associate);

(v)   provide recommendations from their current supervisor and from an accredited member of IAHIP.


4.2   Acceptance of a person as a Pre-accredited Associate shall not be construed in any way as pre-empting the eventual decision of the Association regarding their suitability for accreditation.  Pre-accredited Associates may NOT represent themselves as accredited members of the Association nor use the letters IAHIP as part of their advertising material or stationery.  (Any breach of this prohibition shall provide grounds for withdrawal of pre-accredited associate status and for refusal of accreditation and membership of the Association if and when a Pre-accredited Associate applies for accreditation.)


4.3   If the Pre-accredited Associate does not apply for accreditation within five years of their completion of their training, associate status will lapse.

(i)   are pursuing a training course in psychotherapy that meets all the requirements of Phase 1 of psychotherapy training specified by Bye Law 11 as necessary for eventual accreditation and membership of the Association.  (If the psychotherapy training course that an applicant is pursuing is not one that has achieved IAHIP recognition, an applicant may be asked to provide evidence to the Membership Secretary that the course he/she has completed meets this condition.)

(ii)   supply a letter of confirmation of student status from their training programme

(iii)   agree to conduct their client practice as a student psychotherapist in accordance with the IAHIP Codes of Ethics and Practice for Psychotherapists. (However, as the Association disclaims any responsibility for either the client practice of students in psychotherapy training or the supervision thereof, nothing shall oblige the Association to respond to or deal with any complaint made against a Student Associate).


5.2   Acceptance of a person as a Student Associate shall not be construed in any way as pre-empting the eventual decision of the Association regarding their suitability for accreditation.  Student Associates may NOT represent themselves as accredited members of the Association nor use the letters IAHIP as part of their advertising material or stationery.  (Any breach of this prohibition shall provide grounds for withdrawal of student associate status and for refusal of membership of the Association if and when that person applies in due course for accreditation.)
