+++ BACP Crisis Meeting Over Draper +++

derek_draperThe British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy is having a crisis meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) to discuss the continuing associate membership of Derek Draper.  No one was available for comment when Guido called to contact the BACP.  It is hard to see how someone who thought it “absolutely brilliant” to use mental health issues as a means of political attack can remain a member.  It is hardly compatible with the high ethical standards required by the BACP.

The BACP can not say it had not been warned.  Complaints had already been made to the association over his misrepresentation (in Berkeley, not at Berkeley) of his credentials.  The BACP Ethical Framework [PDF] insists that

Particular care should be taken over the integrity of presenting qualifications, accreditation and professional standing.

Guido revealed last month that he had been expelled from the Wright Institute before completing the course of study.  This second subject of concern makes it impossible for him to continue.   Guido understands that the original complaints were rejected by the BACP on the grounds that they “politically motivated” and did not come from clients or other members of the association.

Guido has been unable to confirm if formal written complaints have been made by disgusted psychotherapists who fear he is bringing psychotherapy into disrepute.  BACP committee members themselves are said to be concerned. The Wednesday meeting is likely to be a precursor to a formal Professional Conduct Hearing.

Hamas offer only a qualified endorsement of the Labour Party’s leader…

“We Salute Jeremy Corbyn’s supportive positions to the Palestinians, but the issue of him as a prime minister is an internal British issue and we respect the choice of the British people.”
