I am currently looking to recruit participants for my qualitative research project exploring trainee counselling psychologists’ experiences of working with clients who meet the diagnostic criteria for ‘Borderline Personality Disorder’ (BPD). I am interested in interviewing trainees who are currently working, or have worked, with clients who meet the DSM diagnostic criteria for ‘BPD’.
You should only participate if you want to; choosing not to take part will not disadvantage you in any way. The interview can be used as an opportunity for engaging in reflection-on-practice which is an essential ingredient of your training.
