RESEARCH STUDY: Shame in the Therapy Room
Participants are required for an upcoming research study entitled:
Shame in the therapy room: a thematic analysis of therapists’ experiences of recognising and working through shame in psychotherapy.
The research is part of my MSc in humanistic and integrative psychotherapy at Turning Point Institute and University College Cork. The purpose of the study is to explore psychotherapist’s experiences of working with client shame. The study is also interested in participants who as psychotherapists have experienced shame themselves when working with clients including any impact on the therapeutic relationship and practice.
Participants must be fully accredited psychotherapists with the IAHIP or IACP. In addition, participants must have experience of working with client shame in psychotherapy, and if relevant, be willing to talk about own shame experiences as a therapist when working with clients.
If you meet the above eligibility criteria and would like to take part in the study, you will be invited to attend an interview that will take approximately one hour, at a mutually agreed time and place (due to coronavirus restrictions the interview is likely to take place online via zoom). Your participation is entirely voluntary.
