A counselling psychology perspective on the experiences of therapists working with clients convicted of crime

Farrant, Bryony (2012). A counselling psychology perspective on the experiences of therapists working with clients convicted of crime. (Unpublished Doctoral thesis, City University London)

Abstract

This doctoral portfolio consists of three pieces of work written at different stages of my training to become a counselling psychologist. There are two distinct but overlapping themes within the portfolio; the experiences of psychologists during therapy and therapeutic work with people who have a forensic history. These pieces of work reflect my evolving identity as a counselling psychologist practitioner and researcher and my longer-standing interest in working with people who commit crime.

Part B of this portfolio is an original piece of qualitative research investigating the experiences of therapists working with prisoners, Part C is a critical review of the literature pertaining to counselling psychologists’ experiences of burnout and the portfolio concludes with Part D, a combined client study and process report detailing my therapeutic work with a client who had a criminal history.
