The BPC has reiterated our opposition to conversion therapy alongside 15 other leading organisations with the signing of the second Memorandum of Understanding on conversion therapy, updated to include gender identity.
The BPC is working with our colleagues at the UK Council for Psychotherapy and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy on a ground-breaking project to set out the training requirements and practice standards for counselling and psychotherapy.
The BPC along with many other partner organisations submitted a response to the NICE guidance for treatment of depression in adults. The methodological concerns we raised in our first response have still not been addressed in the revised version and so, along with our partners, we maintain that the guideline is not fit for purpose and if published will seriously impede the care of millions of people in the UK suffering from depression, potentially even causing clinical harm.
