Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
PWP Registration is for a period of one year. After this, members are registered annually by making an online declaration of fulfilling the required standards for PWP practice, CBT Skills Supervision and PWP CPD. This is verified by random audit.
BABCP PWP Registration is for people working as a PWP working in an IAPT or similar service. For your annual PWP-related CPD you are expected to engage in a minimum of five learning and development activities, including at least six hours of CBT-informed skills development. You must write a CPD Reflective Statement for each of these activities. At least four of the reflective statements must refer directly to CBT-informed principles and approaches.
BABCP PWP Registration also requires you to undertake regular live assessment of your practice as part of your Clinical Skills Supervision arrangements. You must have at least two live assessments of your practice each year, demonstrating two different interventions. You will continue to have at least one hour per week individual Case Management Supervision, and on average one hour per fortnight Clinical Skills Supervision.
You can include live supervision undertaken during your PWP training when you first apply for inclusion on the Register. You must continue to receive live assessment of your practice each year to maintain your Registration.
Variations/exceptions: We recognise that on rare occasions, PWPs are working in settings where a live assessment is not possible. For example, working with clients who are unable to provide informed consent. If this is the case, the supervisor must account for this in the report and explain how good practice is maintained.
Whilst inclusion of a regular live element is recommended for ongoing clinical supervision, it is not a requirement between completing training and applying for registration.
It is recommended for registration purposes, and a requirement for ongoing registration to include regular live sampling of a Supervisee’s practice within the supervision arrangement. his includes live observation, one way screen, video or audio recording (minimum 2 occasions per year, covering at least 2 patients).
Once registered, you will begin to keep a record of your CPD by writing a Reflective Statement. Examples of suitable CPD include:
