CBT training hours and experience
If you completed your training a long time ago, it may be more difficult for you to provide evidence of meeting the Minimum Training Standards (such as course timetables, handbooks, CVs of trainers.)
If so, please create a timeline of your training and experience, providing evidence of this where you can, and where you can’t, a counter-signatory or a number of counter-signatories can be used to attest to your claims. For example, signed statements from Course Directors or peers you trained with confirming course curricula, or signed statements from others who can attest to your qualifications, the content of your training, your experience, etc.
Within this timeline, you will need to show how your training maps against the main headings of the Core Curriculum Reference Document [PDF]. This provides a guide to the expected content of core training in Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies.
Accreditors assessing these applications will take into account long-term commitment to CBT CPD and practice, however you should still do all you can to provide evidence that you have met the Minimum Training Standards.
CBT Case Studies
You must have had four CBT case studies assessed and passed. You can provide evidence of these in one or more of the following ways -
Closely Supervised Cases
You must provide evidence of three closely supervised cases. If you cannot get a signature from your supervisor during the course, you can provide other evidence such as signed supervision logs, or you can ask your current supervisor to sign to provide evidence of close supervision of four recent cases. Please refer to the guidelines below
