The aim is to establish and maintain standards for trainers working at MIP or in the service of MIP.
Also, to inform and offer protection to the public who attend training or are seeking to train at MIP.
- Trainers should recognise the integrity, role and value of trainees, with regard to issues of race, origin, status, gender beliefs, sexual orientation and any other diversity aspect.
- Trainers are responsible for establishing and maintaining appropriate boundaries between themselves and trainees, so that professional relationships are not confused with other relationships.
- Trainers need to respect and adhere to the dual relationships section within the UKCP/MIP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice policy, ie not to work therapeutically with clients who they are actively involved with in a substantial training role.
For example – former trainees must not be accepted as therapeutic clients until a period of six months has passed for reflection and after consultation with a supervisor.
- Trainers will ensure that every student has access to the course handbook, every MIP Policy and Procedure together with other relevant training manuals.
- Trainers will not exploit their status, financially or sexually.
- Trainers are expected to be members of MIP and to adhere to the UKCP/MIP’s Code of Ethics and Professional Practice, as well as MIP’s Complaints Procedure in cases of alleged ethical misconduct.
This policy will be reviewed every 18 months and updated a minimum of every 36 months.
