This poster is part of a PhD research in partnership with York St John University (YSJU), The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

This collaborative project aims to explore through a mixed-methods study the lived experience of counsellors, psychotherapists and clients using ROMs/CFS in clinical practice. The study comprises three phases, (1) conducting a comprehensive scoping review of the literature and a (2) quantitative and (3) qualitative exploration of practitioners’ and clients’ attitudes towards ROMs/CFS through surveys, interviews, and focused groups. A secondary aim is to identify mechanisms, barriers and facilitators impacting the effectiveness and usability of these tools in counselling and psychotherapy.

The scoping review is being conducted, and multilevel barriers, facilitators and mechanisms have already been identified to implement ROMs as routinary practice in counselling and psychotherapy (Moltu & McAleavey, 2021; Solstad et al., 2019).
