The BACP CPD & Events Team research, plan and organise training days, conferences and exhibitions covering a broad spectrum of topics for the interest of those people in the counselling and psychotherapy field. With preferential rates for BACP members, we constantly strive to produce quality training opportunities.

Regular events in our calendar include our Making Connections programme- free events which update members on issues pertinent to BACP and the profession, provide CPD and represent a superb networking opportunity within your local area; a varied programme of Professional Development Days which are designed to develop practitioner skills in specified areas and our annual research conference which presents peer reviewed research covering a wide range of research issues and is a well respected, highly popular event. In addition to these, we hold a number of divisional events throughout the year as well as the association's AGM.

BACP members receive preferential rates at BACP events, BACP organisational members receive preferential rates for up to five people, whilst members of the BACP Divisions receive special rates for their own events. In addition to this, we have a reduced fee membership and student membership category which offer further reductions on events for those holding these types of BACP membership.
