Provisional Accreditation as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the
BABCP means that the Entry Criteria and
Minimum Training Standards
for Accreditation have been achieved.
Full Accreditation is dependent on submission, 12 months after the date of
Provisional Accreditation, of an application for Full Accreditation
(see separate criteria and guidelines). Full Accreditation is for a period
of five years, after which Accredited members will be required to apply for
Re-accreditation every five years.
The overall process of Accreditation is not complete until Full Accreditation
has been granted. If an application for Full Accreditation is not received, or
granted, then the practitioner's status of Provisional Accreditation will
be revoked, and the individual
will not be listed on the CBT Register UK.
