New Psychotherapist

New Psychotherapist – Issue 74, summer 2020

May 22, 2020

Each edition of the New Psychotherapist looks at a particular theme within psychotherapy or a topic with a psychotherapeutic angle. It offers members opportunities to share best practice, share developments likely to impact on their practice and encourage spirited debates between members or discuss views on professional practice and topical issues.

The New Psychotherapist is published three times a year – spring, summer and autumn.

The relationship between the media and mental health has always been complex, from the way mental health issues are portrayed to how an omnipresent media can affect wellbeing.

In this issue of the New Psychotherapist, we focus on how the psychotherapeutic community can support journalists, how compassion fatigue can result from media consumption, and the ways in which the misrepresentation of black, Asian and minority ethnic groups contribute to poor mental health outcomes.

In a letter to all members, re-elected UKCP Chair Martin Pollecoff sets out the organisation’s priorities for the coming years.

We also speak to psychotherapist Monika Celebi to find out how video-conferencing technology can help psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors work with clients during the pandemic.
