Abstract:

When the editor rang me and asked me to give a personal account of what it was like to be involved in ethics and complaints work, I accepted with some misgivings. However, I felt that it would be useful to me to explore the feelings and issues around these issues that generate so much fear and paranoia. I shall be looking at the general nature of ethics and complaints, and also suggesting how we might be able to attend to these issues before they come to the complaint stage.

Abstract:

I understand that mediation is being promoted by HIPS (Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy Section of the UKCP) as the preferred method of dealing with complaints against therapists. It therefore feels timely to share my experience of an attempt to make a complaint, and the mediation process which eventually ensued.

AHPP Mediation Philosophy
Author: Bee Springwood

Abstract:

For the last eighteen months AHPP has been developing a structured system of mediation as a means of dealing with complaints. This began with a practitioner's workshop to explore the process, and a statement of philosophy, which I presented there. What follows is that statement, together with my original motivations for this approach, which has been echoed by other Ethics committee members. I have taken on the position of chair of the ethics committee specifically because this process connects me back to my roots in humanistic values in the late seventies when I was involved quite a bit with exploring co-operative dynamics in small group and community conflict resolution.

Abstract:

I always read John Wren-Lewis's accounts of his experiences, Self & Society 27, 5, with awe, as they are so total and ongoing. He is one of the clearest examples of how enlightenment is available to all of us, and is not some kind of esoteric phenomenon restricted to Himalayan monks.

Abstract:

Once upon a time I heard a story about a girl whose body was stolen. Her uncles came in the night and carried it away while she slept. They said to each other, ‘We will cut this up and sell it, and it will make us rich.’ Many years later, strolling in a market she found pieces of her body; a hand on one stall, her tongue on another, her belly on another. She longed for her body, and spent all her money on gathering these fragments.
