"A new year can bring a pleasing sense of renewal. For many of us it's a perfect time to set new goals and intentions for the coming year.
As professional practitioners, this might mean finding new learning experiences to maintain and improve our knowledge and skills. If you're interested in accessing online CPD our latest package 'Working with children and young people', with modules including self-harm, eating disorders and supporting the LGBT community, is available now.
I wish you all a healthy and happy start to the new year."

BACP's register of counsellors and psychotherapists is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

Our online Counselling and Psychotherapy Research (CPR) journal is an innovative, international, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to linking research with practice. Pluralist in orientation, the journal recognises the value of qualitative, quantitative and mixed method strategies of inquiry and aims to promote high-quality, ethical research that informs and develops counselling and psychotherapy practice.
CPR is of value to researchers, practitioners, policy makers and those whose professions may use counselling skills in their work. A full archive of articles back to Volume 1 is available on the CPR website.
