Busting myths in coaching psychology
Background of the topic:
This workshop will address commonly held beliefs among psychologists and the public about coaching psychology that is not supported by scientific evidence. Attention will also be paid to the ethical implications of maintaining these false beliefs. Practical suggestions around myths in coaching psychology will further be provided.
The Panel: Gail C Wrogemann, Ingra DuBuisson-Narsai, Stefan Botes, and Steven Breger
The panel will consist of four members.
Why should you attend?
The profession of industrial psychology places a high premium on its constituents’ ability to balance the roles of the scientist (developing and test theories) and practitioner (solving real-world problems). When industrial psychologists are able to balance these roles, they are celebrated as scientist-practitioner champions. Even though this is an envisioned state for all practitioners, there continues to be a gap between the science and practice of industrial psychology for many professionals. For example, there might be new scientific evidence that counters commonly held beliefs among practitioners. Additionally, personal encounters in the workplace might make practitioners sceptical about scientific discoveries. The divide between the science and practice of industrial psychology makes the field susceptible to myths (non-evidence based beliefs) in everyday practice, which might cause harm to professionals and their clients. It is, therefore, essential to close the gap by addressing and disputing common myths in industrial psychology.
This workshop, which is structured as a panel discussion between experts, will attempt to address this gap by busting existing myths in coaching psychology (e.g. coaching is only about goals and working with strengths). During the workshop, professionals will be equipped with critical reasoning skills to identify myths in coaching psychology and find useful ways to counter these myths in an evidence-based manner. Practitioners will also be empowered to understand the ethical implications of false beliefs in coaching psychology. The practical implications of these myths will also be discussed during the workshop.
This workshop forms part of a series, namely Busting Myths. Attendees of this workshop will receive a free white paper, published by SIOPSA, which addresses myths present in coaching psychology today, including those discussed during the workshop.
Who should attend?
People professionals that who would like to entrench an evidence-based approach to coaching psychology, enhancing their repertoire of ethical reasoning skills, and expand their knowledge of state of the art evidence that discount and support certain practices in coaching psychology.
