The BABCP conference awards aim to recognise important contributions made to the advancement of cognitive and behavioural psychotherapy, science and practice. Please read these guidelines prior to self-nomination.
You can nominate yourself for an award when you submit a poster, open paper, skills class, or your own individual symposium abstract (i.e. after a symposium has been accepted).
Who is eligible?
You are eligible for one of the awards if you are:
- A registered conference delegate at the awarding conference (day or full conference attendance)
- A member of the BABCP
- Have had a presentation/poster accepted for presentation and meet the criteria for the selected award category
Please note that only one submission per person per category for each conference is permitted. All categories are judged equally regardless of role, career level, background or other characteristics as long as criteria are met.
The first prize for each category will be free registration at the following BABCP conference and a certificate in recognition of excellence in the category.
The judging panel may also award ‘highly commended’ in each category, which would be recognised with a certificate. The BABCP will also publicise the outcome of these awards, offering a platform to share the research or practice presented more widely.
