7. International Coaching Psychology Survey

Dear colleagues
Since 2003 we have been undertaking surveys focusing the
developing field of coaching psychology. This has provided a
useful insight into the approaches used by coaching
psychologists. Looking back over time, we can see how the
practice of coaching psychologists is developing and the field as
a whole is growing.

The survey email is being re-sent to psychologists around the
globe who are members of professional psychology bodies that have
special interest groups in coaching psychology and also to
coaching psychology professional bodies. The link to the survey
is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8T2HDHK

The survey consists of 22 questions which can be answered in
between 10 to 15 minutes depending upon how much extra detail you
wish to provide. The results will be presented at conferences and
will be published in coaching psychology related journals and
books. Thank you for your support.

Best wishes
