Calling Integrative/ humanistic practitioners - What is the clients experience of receiving a transitional object from their therapist? A phenomenological inquiry.


I am entering 4th year; studying Msc Integrative Psychotherapy, and have received ethical approval regarding my research project, which will work towards my dissertation.

My research focus is regarding the impact of the use of transitional objects in the therapeutic relationships; from a clients perspective, to try and gain further understanding for psychotherapists, regarding how these can be used within the therapeutic space, as I have identified in completing literature reviews that research around this topic is limited.

I am interested in attracting participants, who are therapists themselves and have been a client receiving a transitional object, and would be open to participating in a face to face semi-structured interview to discuss their experience and wish to contribute to this piece of research

I look forward to hearing from you, and can be contacted at: jo.armstead@spti.net  For further information please my poster.

Thank you

Jo.
