BABCP Accredited

We are delighted that the Oxford course has recently become British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) Accredited at Level 2. This is the highest level of accreditation and means that on successful completion of our three-year programme, all graduates from our 2018 cohort onwards are eligible for Provisional Accreditation with the BABCP.

This accreditation means the BABCP recognises that all who complete the Oxford course have met high standards of training and experience in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The course delivers this through formal teaching and opportunities for clinical practice and high quality CBT supervision. BABCP accredited practitioners made up of course staff, regional supervisors and visiting lecturers provide this training. Being accredited proves to service users, employers and other organisations that practitioners can deliver evidence-based, effective therapy. It also demonstrates proven skills for working alongside others in therapy but also in teams and wider systems, because CBT is a collaborative therapy which values diversity and inclusion.

Association of Family Therapy (AFT) Accreditation

We are delighted that the programme has Association of Family Therapy (AFT) accreditation for both the Foundation and Intermediate level courses.

The Foundation course was accredited in June 2020 and runs within the first year of the programme. The Intermediate course was accredited in May 2022. We are able to offer this for a smaller group of trainees due to limitations in systemic placement capacity. Trainees pursuing the Intermediate course are also required to complete additional assignments to the D Clin Psych programme. All trainees receive Systemic teaching and attend Systemic Application Groups in years 2 and 3.
