Are you a male psychotherapist, with a minimum of ten years in practice?
If so, you may be eligible to participate in a research study
My name is Pat Timlin and I am a 4th year student of Turning Point Training Institute currently undertaking a MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy awarded by UCC. I am conducting a research study as part of my course requirements entitled:
What keeps you going? A phenomenological analysis of the career choice influences of male psychotherapists, and how they may change over time.
The purpose of this study is to explore the influences that initially brought male psychotherapists into the profession, to investigate whether or not those factors have changed over time, and to examine how any such changes have impacted on their practice. It is hoped to gain insight into what sustains male psychotherapists in an increasingly feminized profession.
You are eligible to participate if you are: a) a male psychotherapist, accredited to practice in Ireland AND b) have been in practice for a minimum of ten years
The study involves a one to one semi-structured interview with the researcher, lasting approximately one hour, which will be arranged at a mutually agreed time and place that is convenient to you.
If you wish to take part or would like more information on the study, you can contact me on the following: firstname.lastname@example.org
