|Welcome to the latest issue of the Journal. It is somewhat delayed due to our involvement as a team in other projects, such as the revision of the training standards at CNHC, a new Code of Ethics and Complaints Procedure with UKCHO and most importantly we have revamped the website so look out for changes to accessibility, ease of use and improved search facility. Read about how this benefits you in this issue.
We decided to use this issue to learn from each other about how we work and the people we can help, by publishing member’s case studies. I have included one of my toughest challenges, a young man with OCD. It is good to have this opportunity to share our experiences and our triumphs as the life of a therapist can be a lonely one, this is also why our peer support meetings and training days are so important. I hope as we forge ahead with new ideas that you feel a part of the BAThH community.
You will have received some of the new BAThH leaflets through the post, these can be given to new clients or they can be used to generate business. We have set a fee of £10 for 40 leaflets to cover the print and postage costs, the initial design and print costs came out of the general funds, but we could not afford to keep an ongoing supply to members this way and provide you with other services, hence the charge. We ran our annual free training day for members earlier this year, thank you to those who came, it was lovely to see so many familiar faces there and for those of you who were unable to attend you can read about the day in this issue.
We have seen some changes to the BAThH Board at the beginning of this year with Jane Clark and Stephen Green retiring, we would like to thank them for their service. Julie Adams and Louise Matthews have been co-opted and taken on the roles of Treasurer and Secretary respectively, many thanks to both of them for stepping into these demanding roles. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Julie Murray for her ongoing Peer Support work. If anyone else wishes to get involved with the Administration of BAThH, please contact me at: email@example.com
