COVID-19 Working Group

Dear Members

Over recent months we have all been rapidly adjusting to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we are very aware that Accredited members, Pre-Accredited members and Student members have been working through a wide range of concerns and difficulties, both personally and professionally. It has been an anxious, frightening time, and financially precarious for many.

Now we are moving into a period of re-opening, tentatively heading back into face to face work and additional concerns are rising up to meet us. Members are looking for guidance not only about working online, but now also about the transition, that is already underway, back to safe practice in face to face work.

The Governing Body has set up a Covid-19 working group, made up of GB members and other IAHIP Committee members, to respond to questions and bring clarity and guidance as much as possible in this unprecedented time. The office has received many different Covid-19 queries over a wide area of concern, and we have been working on these through the summer. We have also been in contact with accredited and non-accredited training courses so we can address concerns and queries coming in from student members. The working group is preparing practical recommendations to the Governing Body for working in the new phase of the pandemic.

As you can appreciate it is a challenging and complicated task! None of us have had to navigate this before, and there are important balances to be found in all areas, between valuable new working practices on one hand and ensuring quality of work and good ethical standards for clients and students on the other.

The Governing Body will be ready to give more guidance for the therapists, supervisors, students and trainings in early September, not only addressing the working implications over recent months, …read more

IAHIP UPDATE 22nd MAY 2020

IAHIP UPDATE 22nd MAY 2020IAHIP OFFICE:
IAHIP continue to review the office and administration situation as the Covid-19 situation unfolds. A decision has been taken this week to allow limited access for some staff to the IAHIP office. With this change we can now resume processing applications for pre-accreditation, accreditation and re-accreditation. If you are waiting to submit any applications you can now forward these by post to the office – 40 Northumberland Avenue, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.

RETURN TO WORK:
There have been enquiries regarding a return to work from members in light of the government’s list of essential services. IAHIP cannot give specific guidance as to when individual members can return to work. This decision lies with employers, and those who are self-employed, taking the necessary precautions and adhering to government, HSE and Health & Safety Authority (HSA) guidelines
For members considering a return to work, we strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with the ‘Return to work safely protocol’ booklet and adhere to their guidelines in order to ensure your own safety and the safety of your clients. This booklet can be accessed here: https://dbei.gov.ie/en/Publications/Return-to-Work-Safely-Protocol.html

The current list of essential service providers under public health guidelines can be accessed below and under Human Health and Social Work Activities, therapy is listed (if essential).

Online Psychological Support for essential workers during the Covid-19 pandemic

IAHIP, the professional body representing over 1,000 humanistic & integrative psychotherapists in Ireland, is offering free psychological support to essential workers during the Covid-19 pandemic. Individual IAHIP accredited therapists have volunteered to offer various forms of online and/or telephone support.


Many essential workers fall outside the remit of the HSE psychological support service and IAHIP is aware of the potential psychological and emotional impact that working in essential services during the Covid-19 pandemic can have on individuals and their families.

IAHIP wants to support such workers during these difficult times, and we believe that they could benefit greatly from professional support.

Essential workers do not need any referral, and can make contact with a therapist directly on the volunteer register below
For further information or questions regarding thissupport service you can contact us by email: admin@nulliahip.org as the head office remains unmanned in line with HSE recommended guidelines.
