ETHOS study – Secondary School Counsellor
The ETHOS study aims to evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of school-based, humanistic counselling by conducting the first randomised controlled trial of this type of intervention. The study is led by Professor Mick Cooper, with Peter Pearce, Faculty Head from Metanoia as the Clinical Lead, partnering with some of the UK's leading academics in counselling and psychotherapy to positively impact the national provision of mental health support for young people. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the development of the evidence for humanistic and person-centred approaches to therapy and school-based counselling, and to develop your skills and experience in the research field.
The successful candidate will be liaising with the ETHOS research team, the school pastoral care team, and students involved in the research study, to organise a working day of 5 counselling sessions timetabled in accordance with the school day. You will also participate fully in the protocols required for the research project (supporting the young people to complete the outcome measures and keep all of this information securely and confidentially when transferring it to the Project Manager). and be an active member of the research counselling team, participate in the research orientation, undertaking training and supervision, and adherence assessment.
