I believe we very badly need a new RT Certification programme, one that will provide basic competence in RT. This will NOT be a GQS or LM training though these might be mentioned. It will dovetail with other more advanced programmes such as the European Psychotherapy training but will not be identical to it. It needs to preserve an international quality as RT basic certification. In designing it we would do well to examine counsellor accreditation schemes around the world so as to provide some degree of compatibility.
Please, please, when we say “certification”, let’s not keep referring to that which was created in the sixties. We need QS programmes to be given by educational specialists, RT training to be given by counselling specialists and so on. This is not to say we could not have a “Choice Theory” course per se BUT we should advertise it as such and present it as such.
