Mental Health in Coaching and Coaching Psychology Practice: Pilot Study
According to the Health and Safety Executive (UK) work-related stress, depression or anxiety continues to represent a significant ill health condition in the workforce of Great Britain, accounting for 44% of work-related ill health and 57% of working days lost, in 2017/18 (HSE, 2018: 9). There were an estimated 44.7 million adults in the United States with a mental illness in 2016. This number represented 18.3% of all U.S. adults (see National Institute of Mental Health, 2017).
Therefore it is likely that coaches and coaching psychologists in their practice will have coachees who may be experiencing mental health problems. This is a pilot study which focuses on how practitioners assist their coachees with mental health problems. It also asks questions relating to your practice, training and supervision.
This survey should take about 10 minutes of your time to complete depending upon whether or not you leave additional comments. There are 20 questions in total including the additional comments or feedback boxes.
The research is being undertaken by the ISCP International Centre for Coaching Psychology Research and has been approved by the International Society for Coaching Psychology (ISCP). Your individual responses will remain confidential and all material published, including any quotes, will be anonymised.
We intend publishing the results of this survey. Your completion of the survey confirms that you agree to us publishing the results and presenting them at events and conferences in the usual manner.
If you have any queries, please contact Professor Stephen Palmer PhD at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing ISCP members in Birmingham, UK at the forthcoming Health and Wellbeing at Work in March.
