Grand-parenting to the UKCP Children and Young People Register
For SEA members wishing to register as a Psychotherapist Working with Children and Young People under the grand-parenting process, there is a two-stage process now in place. Stage 1, which is designed to let the UKCP panel decide whether an applicant is at all suitable for the process, and stage 2, in which (on the basis of the information gathered at stage 1) more detailed information will be required (including a case study). The deadline for stage 1 applications is midnight 31st March, 2014, and stage 2 applications, midnight 30th September, 2014. The fees are: £75 for stage 1, and £275 for stage 2 (payable to UKCP).
As of 31st March, 2015, members will no longer be able to state that they specialise in work with children and young people on their UKCP profile, or in any literature, unless they are either registered on the Children and Young People Register or have successfully achieved, via their College, the Child Proficiency Marker (the final details of which are still to be decided). Members who have completed a UKCP accredited training course in child psychotherapy or systemic family psychotherapy are automatically eligible to be listed on the Register.
Members interested in applying for the grand-parenting process should get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org, who will provide the application form and necessary documents.
