Fellowship of BABCP
To be made a Fellow of BABCP is an honour and mark of distinction as having demonstrated a sustained commitment
to the values and objectives of the Association. Fellowship is awarded by the Board in recognition of an individual’s
significant contribution to the advancement of behavioural and cognitive psychotherapies. Nominees should have been a
BABCP member for a minimum of five years and demonstrated the significance of their contribution to CBT across of a
range of domains, such as research, teaching, provision of clinical service, or services to BABCP itself.
It is not necessary to have excelled in every domain. Full consideration will be given to quality and quantity across
different domains and no hierarchy of areas should be assumed. Your peers will rate each section of your nomination to
determine if you satisfy the criteria for Fellowship. It may feel unnatural but you should trumpet what you have achieved.
For instance, it is important to say you were a Course Director of your local teaching course, but what did you do that was
over and above the expectations for your role?
While recipients are allowed to call themselves a Fellow of BABCP, the title should not be used to imply competence in the
practice of CBT. Moreover the title can be removed in any disciplinary process.
The application fee includes a sum to cover processing costs, peer review and a small
premium to raise funds for BABCP.
BABCP had a trial run in 2010 in which Nick Grey and Charlie McConnochie were made
Fellows, while Fellowship was conferred on Clive Long at the 2012 AGM.

successful applicants to be announced at the AGM in July 2013.
