Appendix 1

Personal / personal therapy

Students are required to be in personal / self therapy for the duration of the modular program and on a regular weekly basis. Financial costs of personal therapy are not included in the costs of education. Students are responsible for paying the cost of personal therapy directly to their therapist.

Students will be in the personal / self therapy of certified therapists with at least 4 years of practice.

If a student decides to engage a therapist for personal therapy independently, he / she must obtain approval from the Program Manager.

Personal therapy provides an important development moment for students by ensuring that their personal / self growth is in line with the evolving demands of psychotherapeutic education and the associated practice of supervised psychotherapeutic activity. More precisely, personal therapy will sensitize the student to:

It links important aspects of theory with its own development.

He develops sufficient insight to be able to increase the mature assessment of his personal history and the current degree of functioning with individuals and in the group.

Be able to link personal insights into clinical practice in particular in understanding transfer-counter-transfer issues.

The ability of a student to be a therapist is directly related to his / her ability to be a client. Namely, personal therapy requires readiness to be vulnerable to the development of consciousness of self and self in relation to other people. This can be monitored during an education in the student’s increasing ability to establish contact, with oneself and with other participants of the education, including the leader.

Personal / self development is also the focus of a personal developmental profile.

In case a student can not meet the requirements of current personal therapy, e.g. long periods of pause in attendance without satisfactory explanation, completion of therapy or non-attendance at therapeutic sessions, the trainer of education will be reasonably expected to be informed by the therapist in a brief written statement exclusively limited in the presence / absence statement.

Appendix 2

Financial supervision costs are not included in education costs. Students are responsible for paying supervisory costs directly to their supervisor.

Students can opt for a group or individual form of supervision.

BHIDAPA, in cooperation with HITUDIM, will provide students with the names of supervisors who have recorded a certain level of ability to establish the relationship between psychotherapy theory and practice.

If a student chooses to independently engage a supervisor who is not on the list offered by BHIDAP, in cooperation with HITUDIM, he must obtain approval from the Program Manager.

Appendix 6

Code of Ethics

Client-therapist relationship

Odnos klijent-terapeut je profesionalni odnos u kojem je dobrobit klijenta terapeutova primarna briga

  • Dignitet, vrijednost i jedinstvenost klijenta moraju se poštivati cijelo vrijeme
  • Cilj terapeuta je da promiče povećanu svijest, potiče samo-podršku, razvoj selfa i autonomiju klijenta, s uvidom o proširenom opsegu izbora koji su mu dostupni, zajedno s njihovom sposobnošću / željom za prihvaćanjem odluke koje donese
  • Terapeut mora prepoznati važnost dobrog odnosa za učinkovitu terapiju i biti svjestan snage i utjecaja koje im ta snaga daje. Terapeut mora djelovati u skladu s ovim saznanjem i ne iskorištavati klijenta financijski, emocionalno ili fizički/seksualno za lični/osobni napredak ili za svoje potrebe:*Terapeut ne smije uzimati novac s krivim namjerama – svjesno zadržavati klijenta nakon što je uočeno da je terapija bila učinkovita ili povećavati troškove bezrazložno bez potrebnog upozorenja
    *Fizički i/ili seksualni odnos s klijentom je eksplorativan. Prekid terapije ne mijenja prirodu odnosa*Seksualno uznemiravanje u obliku namjernih ili ponavljanih komentara, gesti ili fizičkih kontakata seksualne prirode koje jesu, ili bi ih klijent mogao smatrati uvredljivim, su neetični
  • Terapeut mora biti svjestan da su drugi odnosi ili vanjske obaveze u konfliktu s interesima klijenta. Kada takav konflikt interese postoji, odgovornost terapeuta je da to obznani i da bude spreman proraditi ta pitanja s klijentom
  • Terapeut mora prepoznati dualni odnos – kada je klijent istovremeno zaposlenik, blizak prijatelj, rođak ili partner – koji će vjerojatno pokvariti njihovu profesionalnu prosudbu i time izazvati stres klijentima i njima samima

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is the essence of good work. Any exchange of information between the therapist and the client must be considered confidential. When a therapist has any doubt about the limits of trust he / she needs to seek supervision. Confidentiality does not change after the termination of the therapeutic relationship.
