THERAPIST’S EXPERIENCES OF WORKING WITH MALE CLIENTS WITH HISTORY OF CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE – IMPLICATIONS FOR COUNSELLING PSYCHOLOGY PRACTICE: INTERPRETATIVE PHENOMENOLOGICAL ANALYSIS
This research is interested in exploring therapists’ experiences of working with male clients with a history of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA).
This research seeks to:
Contribute to growing evidence of the complexity of the subject of male CSA and support the recognition and attention it requires
- Improve understanding of the work with male survivors of CSA
- Contribute to a shift in social consciousness and acceptance of male children’s vulnerability and susceptibility to sexual abuse
- Contribute to understanding of socio-cultural attitudes to children, sexuality and gender
- Inform therapist training and support professional practices beyond specialist CSA services
This research aims to recruit 8-10 UK qualified therapists (counselling psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists), who have worked with at least two male clients with a history of CSA, with each for a minimum of six sessions.
Participation in this research will involve the completion of a short demographic questionnaire and a semi-structured interview lasting 60-90 minutes.
This research has been approved under the procedures of the University of Roehampton’s Ethics Committee and is being supervised by Dr Edith Steffen and Dr Diane Bray.
Your participation will be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in participating please contact the researcher, Marta Chromekova: firstname.lastname@example.org
