The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Coaching Division will be launching their Journal in January 2012. The Editor, Diane Parker, is specifically looking for papers and contributors on the following topics:
– A feature article (approx 3000 words) on resilience and boundaries for coach-therapists – this could be someone who has recently made the transition from therapist to coach or has been practising as both coach and therapist for a while. The author should be someone who is able to draw on a diversity of sources and contacts in order to provide as well-rounded an overview of the issues as possible.
– A feature article (3000 words) exploring the personal vs professional in the executive coach/client relationship – how much of a client’s personal life is relevant in executive coaching? How important is it that clients are willing and able to ‘get personal’, particularly high-profile clients, CEOs of major organisations/institutions, etc? This should be written from the point of view of someone with long-term experience of executive coaching who can draw on a variety of sources.
Diane is also keen to hear from potential book and conference reviewers, case studies for a regular Day In the Life feature of practising coaches, and also client case studies for a regular On The Couch-style series.
So if you have recently read a book, attended a conference, networking or CPD event (doesn’t always have to be BACP-related), would like to feature as a case study or know someone who would like to (!) please feel free to spread the word among your colleagues, clients and peers. (The client case study will of course be anonymous.)
