If you are a student, you can enjoy all the benefits of BABCP membership at a reduced rate. Journal access is online rather than as a physical copy.
This is aimed at retired CBT practitioners and applicants from developing countries.
A reduced rate is available to members not in receipt of income or earning below the NHS Grade 5 threshold. Further details on eligibility and evidence required are included on the reduced rate application form.
