Seeking psychotherapists with therapeutic experience of clients from culturally diverse backgrounds
I am looking to interview fully qualified and accredited psychotherapists who have experience in working with clients from culturally diverse backgrounds to their own.
As part of my MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy with Turning Point Institute (accredited by University College Cork), I am conducting a qualitative research study. I would appreciate the opportunity to interview you about your experiences in this area. An interview would last approximately 30-40 minutes and would be audio recorded, and subsequently transcribed. Interviews will consist of a short series open-ended questions related to the central research question and based on your own experience as Psychotherapist. All interviews will be anonymized.
My research title is ‘An exploration of psychotherapists’ experience of cultural diversity within psychotherapy practice’. The research study is being supervised by Dr. Nicky O’Leary.
This research aims to;
- Explore psychotherapists’ experience of working with clients from culturally diverse backgrounds, within psychotherapy in light of recent cultural shifts in Irish society
- Provide tangible, qualitative insight into an increasingly important, and relatively recent phenomenon in Ireland, namely the culturally diverse therapeutic space. To date, there is an apparent lack of published research on this topic with regard to the Irish context.
- Contribute to psychotherapists’ practice with clients from a culturally diverse background.
If you are interested in taking part or would like additional information, please email me Geraldine O’Kelly Cooney (firstname.lastname@example.org). I look forward to hearing from you.
