Regulation Update 2017

November 2017

At the Fourteenth AGM, held on 4th November 2017, we discussed the new government proposals for regulating psychotherapy. The consultation document can be found here, and a document from the Professional Standards Authority can be found here. This gives some indication of the role the PSA may take with respect to ‘negative registration’, something with serious implications for members of The College in relation to other registration bodies. The response needs to be in by 23 January 2018; The Alliance for Counselling and Psychotherapy is also likely to prepare a response. We encourage members of the College to alert their own training organisations to this consultation document urgently, to prepare responses, and to tell The College of any such responses being created or submitted.
