Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
For Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist Accreditation, you must have met the majority of the Minimum Training Standards (MTS) in a single, post-graduate CBT course. Please see here for detailed guidance.
You can then “top up” some training hours, case studies and supervised practice after your training to meet the MTS -
You must be able to provide evidence that you completed 200 hours of face to face training on CBT skills and theory during your training.
To meet any additional hours required to meet our standards you may include up to 100 hours attained from other professional development activities which meet these standards.
We use the Core Curriculum 2021 to assess the content of CBT trainings. Please put together a document which maps your training against the Core Curriculum - you must be able to show that you have had training in all of the main areas. This should be submitted with your application.
For information on the cases you can use, please see the final section of CBT Practice for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist Accreditation.
If you don't have evidence of having completed four case studies which were assessed during training, you will need to complete additional case studies before you apply for accreditation and provide evidence of their assessment.
The case study marking criteria gives guidance on this and who is a suitable assessor.
Closely Supervised Cases
If you don't have evidence of having completed at least three closely supervised cases during training - including live supervision, please provide evidence of this from your current practice.
