Invitation to Participate
My name is Martina Doyle and I am a fourth year student on the MSc in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy in Turning Point Training Institute (TPTI) and University College Cork (UCC). In partial fulfillment for the award of MSc, there is an academic requirement to conduct research in the field of Psychotherapy.
I am writing to invite your participation in my upcoming research study entitled:-
The Supervisory Relationship: A Supervisor’s Experience of Repair
The purpose of the study is to explore the Supervisors experience of repairing a rupture which occurred in the supervisory relationship. The study also aims to explore factors that may have impacted the repair process and to examine if the repair process had any impact on future practice.
In order to participate participants need to be accredited with IAHIP as Humanistic and Integrative therapists with three years’ experience of working as a Supervisor. Participants must also have experience of repair of rupture in the supervisory relationship.
If you choose to take part, you will be invited to attend an interview that will take approximately one hour, at a mutually agreed time and place. Your participation is voluntary and if you wish to discontinue at any point that will be your choice.
A participant information sheet and consent form are both available for your perusal. If you would like to receive a copy or if you have any queries or questions concerning the study, please feel free to contact me or my research supervisor at the contact details listed below.
Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank you for your time to read through this information and considering taking part in this research.
