There are different types of membership in CABP:
FULL MEMBERSHIP, ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP AND AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP:
If you wish to apply for any category of membership of CABP, please contact our Administrator at . Your request will then be passed to the Membership and Accreditation Committee, who will ensure that you are issued with the correct form and give you any advice and guidance you may need.
There are several routes to Full Membership and it is, therefore, essential that you are given the correct form to fill in depending on your circumstances. Full membership may include reaccreditation with UKCP or not, depending on circumstances.
ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP is open to:
Therapists awarded a Certificate in Body Psychotherapy from an established Body Psychotherapy Training Institute and who are trained and working towards their Accreditation. These members are covered by the CABP Ethics and Equal Opportunities Committee (EEOC) for a period of four years from award of their Certificate. They must be in regular supervision with a Body Psychotherapy supervisor recognised by CABP to maintain their Associate Membership.
AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP is open to:
Anyone who has an interest in body psychotherapy and wishes to maintain that interest through attending CABP events. Affiliate Members' work is not covered by the CABP EEOC.
