Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to investigate basic components and methods of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) training in the UK. The course directors of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) Accredited Level 2 CBT Training Courses completed questionnaires that assessed the components and methods of the cognitive behavioral therapy training used in their programs. The results revealed that most of the accredited courses provide comprehensive training based on the BABCP guidelines. Especially, a strong emphasis is placed on practical training during clinical placements, with supervision focusing on building skills for establishing therapeutic relationships, addressing individual needs, and using supervision effectively. Finally, implications of the findings for establishing cognitive behavioral therapy training guidelines in Japan were discussed.
