Are placements required/provided within the training?

To learn any skill, you have to practice it. As a trainee CBT therapist, ideally you will be on placement during your training. For accreditation, you will need to have completed 200 clinical practice hours that are supervised by a BABCP Accredited Therapist or equivalent.

Some courses provide the placements (e.g. NHS Talking Therapies courses), others you will have to find your own placement.
