BPS Doctoral students can now gain BACP individual membership
For Clinical Psychology, Counselling Psychology and similar doctoral trainees, progression to ‘D’ level will henceforth be recognised as sufficient for Individual BACP Membership (BACP levels of accreditation). Please note that this initiative is intended to enhance professional opportunities and be an addition to BPS, UKCP or other memberships. This exception was arranged for BPS trainees by the Psychotherapy and Counselling Union (PCU).
In order to take advantage of this new way to join the BACP as an Individual Member, you will need to ask for a Letter of Confirmation re your progression, from your Course Director. For more details contact the union: firstname.lastname@example.org
This exception was only made possible because the Psychotherapy and Counselling Union (PCU) liaised with BACP. In achieving this exception PCU has clearly demonstrated the benefits of union membership.
