Research at IACP

In line with the purpose statement and strategic aims of the IACP, we are committed to engaging formally with research. Members Surveys (2013, 2015, 2018) and General Public Surveys (2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2019) are crucial to this, helping to shape the future direction of the organisation and to raise awareness of the profession.

Research Database

Following results from our Members’ Survey 2018, which indicated a keen interest amongst members to have access to a research database, we ran a trial with EBSCO. Feedback from members was overwhelmingly positive. We now offer access to this on a permanent basis for all members.

Research Committee

A Research Committee has been established. This Committee will aid the development of strategic thinking about research policy and activity as well as encourage and embed a research culture within IACP and the profession.

Research Bursary

To acknowledge and encourage research in counselling and psychotherapy the IACP will now award a bursary. The bursary is open members who are near completion of their PhD research. The bursary is to help to cover the expenses involved in PhD research completion.

Research Corner

Research news and projects are posted in the E-news research corner and research articles and guides are posted in the Members Area research corner.
