Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
Once you are accredited there is a wide range of Cognitive and/or Behavioural Psychotherapy CPD activities which can contribute to meeting your professional development needs. Most practitioners engage in a variety of CBT CPD activities appropriate to their specific practice.
The requirements are the same for full and part-time practitioners.
Acceptable CPD Activity and Evidence
CBT includes a diverse range of therapies based on cognitive and behavioural theories and evidence-based practice. So you might choose core CBT knowledge, skills and interventions, or you can also include activities which enhance your knowledge and skills in emerging, evidence-based cognitive and/or behavioural approaches.
CPD activities which help to maintain your accreditation must be specifically relevant to your CBT practice. We recognise that your own development needs may include engaging in activities which are in specialist areas of practice - expanding expertise, working with core processes or various populations.
As you may include one Reflective Statement about an activity which is not specifically CBT, you must show how this is relevant to your CBT professional development.
You must provide a Reflective Statement and evidence for each activity at Full Accreditation, Full Reinstatement and if you are selected for Reaccreditation Audit. In each case, you will provide details from the previous twelve months in practice.
Reflective Statements are best completed shortly after completing each activity.
