British Psychology Service
Friday, 5 September 2008The British Psychology Service (BPS) is the representative body for practicing Psychologists and for the development of Psychology both academically in learning institutions and in the work place or professional practice. We are working to ensure that good practice is upheld in all areas of psychology in the UK in education, industry and socially.
There are many different areas that Psychology umbrella and all of these are listed on the BPS website along with information on the specifics of each science. You can find links to the various pages here Divisions of Psychology.
Professional bodies, such as the British Psychological Society (BPS), the United Kingdom Counsel for Psychotherapy (UKCP) the British Association of Counselling (BAC), the British Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapy (BABCP) and the Royal College of Psychiatrists, have developed processes of accreditation and registration of training courses and of individual therapists, providing some guarantee that they do have the necessary training and skills to carry out the therapy.
