Practitioner research networks

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) have set up a lively practitioner research network made up of therapists and researchers to develop collaboration opportunities and to produce practice-based evidence for the use of practitioners. If you have further questions or want to sign up to the group’s mailing list, please email

The Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (AFT) is encouraging family therapy practitioners to form practitioner research networks. Many practitioners would like to be involved in research but their context does not allow them to initiate projects on their own. 

By working collaboratively, a group of practitioners can create significant research findings and, because the project is designed by and for practitioners, these projects are likely to have direct clinical usefulness.  These networks do not need to be confined to a single country. Initiatives towards PRNs are being fostered by the UKCP and EFTA research committees. Contact Professor Peter Stratton for further information.

People in Harmony Research Network.

People in Harmony (PIH) is a small national charity that was established in 1972 to provide support for people in mixed race relationships and mixed-race children and adults.

In recognition of the increasing research interest in mixed race issues PIH is establishing a network of researchers to share information and findings.

Please contact Dr Yvonne Ayo for further information.

FTSRC distribution list

Our distribution list can also be used to foster links and collaborations between current and would-be researchers. If you would like to contact other systemic researchers in your area of interest, please let us know.
