Faculties and groups

There are a range of ways – both online and offline – for UKCP members to get together with others to discuss practice issues and developments in the profession. They range from faculties at the more formal end of the scale through special interest groups to psychotherapy clubs.

Faculties

UKCP faculties are groups of members who share a mission or interest. Any UKCP member is welcome to join any faculty.

Faculties discuss and develop ideas. Faculties may, for example, develop and put forward standards of education and training for UKCP colleges to adopt.

UKCP currently has two faculties:

Special interest groups

UKCP special interest groups are informal groups created by and for members who share a particular professional interest.

Members can create groups for any purpose in line with UKCP’s mission and values. We support groups by helping to publicise their activities to the wider membership.

We currently have one special interest group:

Psychotherapy Clubs

Psychotherapy Clubs are informal get-togethers where members can network, have fun, drink, eat, learn, socialise, supervise, create. Other mental health specialists are welcome to attend and participate.

We have active Psychotherapy Clubs in Hampstead, Liverpool and Norfolk. Please check our events page to see if a club meeting has been scheduled.
