PhD member 2015 survey  

BACP PhD Student Survey

Much counselling and psychotherapy research undertaken at PhD or doctoral level is unpublished and remains unknown. This survey aimed to identify some of this work, map the topics investigated, determine the transferability of skills and the impact this research has had on the counselling and psychotherapy profession, as well as identify ways in which we might support our members when doing their PhD.


We wanted to explore a number of issues involved with undertaking research at this level, for example, what did members feel were their greatest challenges; did members do paid work whilst studying; what impact did they believe their research would have on the profession, on policy and at a strategic level; what was their interest in research and how did they plan to disseminate their findings. We also wanted to establish why a particular topic was chosen to study, if the research was part of a larger study and what our members felt were the implications of their research to practice. We also asked members how they funded their study and whether they knew of the bursaries we offer to members doing a doctorate, which covers their annual BACP membership fee for 12 months.
