Guidelines & Rules
Participating in our Fraud reporting initiative requires you to follow our guidelines. Responsible investigation and reporting includes, but not limited to the following:

  • Don't violate the privacy of other users, destroy data, disrupt our services, etc.

If we or any part of our group is sold, or some of its assets transferred to a third party, your personal information, as a valuable asset, may also be transferred to the acquirer, even if they are not in the same line of business as us. Our member database could be sold separately from the rest of the organization, in whole or in a number of parts. Potential purchasers and their advisors may have limited access to data as part of the sale process.

You should use a password which is unique to your use of the Site – do not use the same password as you use for another site or email account; and,
  • To maintain good internet security. For example, if your email account or Facebook account is compromised this could allow access to your account with us if you have given us those details and/or permitted access through those accounts. If your email account is compromised it could be used to ask us to reset a password and gain access to your account with us. You should keep all of your account details secure. If you think that any of your accounts has been compromised you should change your account credentials with us, and in particular make sure any compromised account does not allow access to your account with us.

Purpose for the Occultgyaan policy statement on the conduct or use of research

We are in one of the world’s fastest-growing professions. As the association that represents that profession, Occultgyaan has the responsibility to formulate an explicit policy concerning its perspective on the relationship of research and training / coaching practice. A policy statement provides guidance and direction to both practitioners and researchers; empowers participants, contributors, stakeholders, coaching organizations and clients alike with regard to engaging in or utilizing research; enhances the legitimacy of Occultgyaan as a whole; serves a protective function in that it guides behaviour and, at the same time, sets boundaries; enhances decision-making; facilitates evaluation; and defines priorities.

This policy is intended to apply to Occultgyaan staff, the Occultgyaan Board and its executive, members, and academic personnel, students, clients or external vendors who wish to utilize our resources to engage in research on any aspect of the services or workshops we deal in.

  • Key Definitions

Research
Not all information about healing, training or coaching can be categorized as research. Occultgyaan’s working definition of research is: Research (including evaluation) is defined as any activity that involves the collection, collation, review or evaluation of data or information for the purpose of describing, maintaining or modifying activities, practices, interventions, or treatments. Research may involve the manipulation of variables or environmental factors whereas evaluation more typically involves the review of information for the purpose of providing feedback about the function, productivity or efficacy of an activity. Evaluation includes but is not limited to activities including needs assessments, process assessment, outcome studies, impact analysis, cost-benefit analysis and meta-analysis.

 

Evidence-Based Practice
We encourages and endorses evidence-based practice (EBP) with respect to effective coaching. That is, we wants our students and coaches to make solid decisions regarding the method or technique they use based on their ability to critically assess the best available, current, valid and relevant coaching evidence before applying it to day-to-day coaching practices. We believe combining the explicit knowledge derived from sound research, broadly defined, as above, with the more tacit or experiential knowledge of the practitioner is the synergistic sine qua non of effective coaching.

Policy Statement
It is our policy to encourage and promote research activities that enhance the professional development and standards of the worldwide therapists and trainers / coaches community. We strive to collaborate with organizations and individuals that promote the highest standards of research to establish a discipline of studies to support and further the profession. We seeks to facilitate the exchange of information among researchers and practitioners studying theory, methodologies, and outcomes of the areas we deal in. Equally important, we seeks to make this information available to practicing ones and those interested in the profession. Specifically, our goals are to:

  • Increase the knowledge base concerning the art and science of healing, training, coaching and all the other areas we cater to;
  • Contribute to the advancement of theory and the establishment of best evidence-based practices;
  • Disseminate research to the practitioner of the related areas;
  • Establish increased credibility for and as a discipline through the encouragement and support of best research practices and resulting theory development in the practice of areas we cater to;
  • Close the gap between  research and the practice by combining evidence-based practice with practice-based evidence

By the same token, research in the areas we cater to might be divided into two broad categories: 1) market-oriented or industry-related research on the profession; and 2) research to gather evidence on techniques, core competencies, methodologies, outcomes, and theories.

1) Market-Oriented or Industry-Related Research

This kind of research on the profession, on consultants / trainers and on the organizations often makes use of evaluative techniques and surveys conducted for the following purposes:

  • To track trends in the profession so that we can best serve all the parties concerned;
  • To assist the Board in making decisions regarding the future policies and directions;
  • To provide information to member clients, trainers, therapists on industry trends;
  • To provide valid information to media or other parties requesting information about the profession
  • To facilitate Occultgyaan’s public relations (PR) efforts

In short, market-oriented research is our profession’s way of looking at itself. Our policy is to prioritize requests for information from our members and to protect them from repeated and unnecessary demands on their time and resources. Thus, the criteria for our participation in such surveys is the importance of the information to be gathered and the legitimacy of the researcher or organization conducting the survey balanced against the time and/or other resources demanded of members or other respondents.

2) Research to Gather Evidence on Techniques, Methodologies, Outcomes and Theories

The core purpose of Occultgyaan is to advance the art, science, and practice of professional consulting & coaching in the areas we cater to. Alternative sciences is an applied profession, and its successful development requires a dialectic process among trainers and practitioners to develop a discipline that can support the profession, and vice-versa. It is assumed that a discipline requires a solid theoretical foundation that will strengthen the profession and contribute to its ongoing development. The quality of coaching theory will be determined by a vibrant research community combined with practitioners who both utilize and contribute to research inside and beyond Occultgyaan.

Therefore, for both broad categories of research on alternative sciences (delineated in 1 and 2 above), we will encourage and collaborate with researchers and organizations that are gathering evidence on any aspect of profession, given the following limitations:

  • Researchers must be aware of and adhere to our Code of Ethics.
  • The research must meet ethical guidelines for the treatment of human subjects;
  • Our members must be protected from undue demands on their time and resources, and any requests must be consistent with our priorities and policies.
  • Internal or state-of-the-profession surveys may be commissioned from time-to-time by Occultgyaan.
  • Research Portal will be vetted by Occultgyaan.

  2. A valid “from” and “reply to” address must be included with each message.
    If you have a subscription list, you should send a confirmation email that the person wishes to be on the list.
