IACP Behaviour & Attitudes Research

Counselling & Psychotherapy Quantitative Research into Public Experience and Attitudes

The IACP commissioned research company - Behaviour & Attitudes - to conduct ‘Counselling & Psychotherapy Experience & Attitudes Quantitative Research’.

The results of the research give a fascinating insight of the attitudes of the Irish public towards counselling / psychotherapy.

Over the past few months we have released some of the findings to the Media and we have received a high amount of interest and indeed exposure in the press, radio and also TV.

By creating a discussion in the media, it has really helped to raise awareness of the issues, the IACP and also awareness of what Counselling / psychotherapy has to offer the general population.

This research is the first of its kind for the IACP and we have established a Research Committee to drive new research initiatives within the IACP.

As part of this Research Development, the IACP will be co-hosting the prestigious 2013 BACP Research Conference in Birmingham, England.

This is a significant step forward in the development of the IACP’s research strategy and a great opportunity for IACP members to become more involved with research.

Timeframe for statutory registration

 

Draft regulations to designate the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and to establish a registration board will be ready for submission to the Houses of the Oireachtas for their approval during the present session, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has told the Dail.

 

The Minister recently concluded a public consultation on  his proposal to regulate counsellors generally under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.

 

On foot of the consultation process, He has decided to proceed with the designation of two distinct professions under the Act, that of counsellor and psychotherapist. Each will have its own register under one registration board. This decision has been communicated to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council, the relevant professional bodies and all the respondents to the public consultation process.

 

Subject to the approval of the Houses, the next step will be the appointment of the 13 members of the registration board, following the submission of suitable candidates for the Minister's consideration, by the Public Appointments Service. The aim is that the registration board will be in a position early in the New Year to begin the task of drafting the various bye-laws to allow it to establish its registers.
