Continuing Professional Development, (CPD)
CPD is a value of the Ethical Framework and as such, all BACP members need to consider carefully their needs for CPD and engage in appropriate activities. In addition, the BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists requires that all registrants agree to engage in the CPD process and plan, record, review and reflect upon their CPD in a structured way. The Register defines CPD as
"Any learning experience that can be used for the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of competence, knowledge and skills to ensure that the practitioner has the capacity to practise safely, effectively and legally within their evolving scope of practice. It may include both personal and professional development."
