BABCP offers accreditation for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists, Supervisors, Trainers and Psychological
Wellbeing practitioners. BABCP also accredits CBT training courses at two levels.
At the Accreditation Committee meeting held in February 2014, discussion relating to increasing the minimum monthly supervision to 1.5 hours for full time clinical practice was broad ranging and included views such as the evidence base supporting quality rather than quantity aspects of supervision; the importance of BABCP taking responsibility as a standard setting body for ensuring that previously set ‘minimum’ cannot be misinterpreted by those not fully supportive of accredited practitioners; and advisability of bringing our standard more into line with standards within psychotherapy more generally. It was considered on balance, taking aspects of these factors into account, that an increase would be generally beneficial, and supportive of those who might need to lobby more locally for adequate support for their practice.
A number of important updates are underway regarding the areas of Recognised Core Professions, CBT Register UK listing, CPD requirements and the Supervisor Report
