Research Fund

The aim of BABCP is to promote the theory and practice of behavioural and cognitive therapy. One of the ways we do this is to fund research from the money raised by your donations through Gift Aid, a conference levy and from other donors.

Applications 2017

Applications for the 2017 round of research grants are now open. The grants awarded from the Research Fund in 2016 were as follows -

(1) Dr Marion Cuddy (Kings College London) and Dr Katherine Rimes (Kings College London). A Pilot Study of a Group Intervention for Couples Affected by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Grants depend on the monies raised from Gift Aid and is further supported by a contribution from Spring and Summer Conference registration fees. Additional income this year has been generated from donations associated with the sale of private indemnity insurance policies via a third party introducer agreement.
