CORU’s Counsellors & Psychotherapists Webinar

CORU’s Counsellors & Psychotherapists Webinar

Recording & Presentation Slides

On December 12th, 2022, CORU invited all their stakeholders to attend a virtual information session. The invitation was issued to a broad range of stakeholders and bodies, including professional bodies, education providers and representative bodies. This webinar introduced CORU’s legislative framework as well as progress to date on the ongoing work of regulation for the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. This was an opportunity to learn more about the work of the Counsellors and Psychotherapists Registration Board and the opening of its register.

Ahead of this event, CORU asked that the stakeholders nominate two representatives from their organisation to virtually attend. ICP Board Director and FTAI accreditant Mary Moriarty was pleased to represent the ICP at the session – several ICP Board Directors also attended on behalf of their individual organisations.

The stakeholders were also encouraged to include any questions which they would like addressed by CORU during this session. ICP asked what operational definitions for Psychotherapy are the Registration Board referencing in their work? ICP recommended the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP) definition.

What is Psychotherapy?

The FAQ section on the Counsellors and Psychotherapists webpage on the CORU website has also been updated to incorporate questions submitted before and during the information session.

Please find below the recording links of the session and the presentation slides.

Please note, as there were points during the webinar with audio issues, CORU have included two additional slides detailing the information covered which may have been missed.
