Description

The only way is ethics? Hegemony and risk in psychotherapy research.

Abstract: Counselling and psychotherapy modalities are required to provide robust evidence of their effectiveness, in the post-IAPT landscape. Within university settings, research into therapy is increasingly framed by the hegemony of a medical ethical discourse. This is a largely positivist framework, defensive, rule-bound, and highly risk-averse with regard to perceived client vulnerabilities. Ethical approval procedures thus comprise a key factor confirming the subordinate position of therapy as a semi-profession.

Peter Jenkins is a counsellor, supervisor, researcher, and former programme leader of the MA Counselling at Manchester University. He has been a member of both the BACP Professional Conduct Committee and the UKCP Ethics Committee. He has written widely on legal, ethical and professional issues relating to therapy. His latest book is Professional Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy: Ethics and the Law. (Sage, 2017).
