CPR New Researcher Award 2018

This annual award recognises the best submission to CPR by a new researcher describing any aspect of research in counselling and psychotherapy.

The judges look for: 

  • clarity of research aims and research question
  • use of methods appropriate to the research question and CPR's standards and guidelines
  • exploration of the relevant theoretical framework(s)
  • appropriate conclusions
  • contribution to knowledge
  • implications for counselling and psychotherapy practice

Eligibility

This award is open to members and non-members. You must be: 

  • a current full time or part time student, or have graduated in the last 24 months
  • a new researcher. Although you may co-author your submission, with your supervisor for example, the research must be your own and the writing primarily yours. 

Application process

Please see the form below for further information and to apply. The closing date for submissions is Friday 26 January 2018.

You must submit a research paper which complies with the author's guidelines for CPR. It should not exceed 7,000 words (excluding references) and include keywords and an abstract of 250 words.

We can also consider papers already accepted for publication in CPR for the award. The article must be your first published piece of research in any journal, and all papers will be subject to usual CPR peer review procedures. Please email research@bacp.co.uk if you would like your paper to be put forward for the award.

In both cases, you will need to provide a written statement confirming that the research and paper is your own and has not been published before.
