Topic: Research Study on ‘What Does Not Work in Regression Therapy’
This Research Report conveys a range of findings determined from a research study conducted with 15 Regression Therapists who were dominantly members of EARTh (80% EARTh, 20% non-EARTh). The topic of the study was ‘What Does Not Work in Regression Therapy’ and the data was collected via questionnaires. The intention of this study was to generate data on this particular topic which would contribute to the field of knowledge within Regression Therapy whilst also creating a reflective awareness about practice. The findings were analysed using simplified versions of thematic and content analysis and this methodological approach was adopted to structure the data into meaningful themes of problematic areas within which the study respondents had experienced difficulties either as practitioners of Regression Therapy and/or clients. The data communicated by the participants offered rich and meaningful content and allowed for a purposeful analysis which indeed allowed for reflection and a heightened awareness of practice, whilst offering a contribution to the knowledge base of the field. Whilst a number of the answers were unique in focus there was an ability to collate the data into the dominant themes of Resistance, The Integration of Other Therapeutic Approaches, The Making of Meaning, Not Attending to the Clients Practical Needs, Not Appropriately Attending to the Clients Material and Self Reflection/Self Awareness.
