Training and supervision in BEP
Training in BEP is important before the use of this treatment-protocol. The eclectic
nature of BEP means that the therapist must have a larger therapeutic arsenal than
for other PTSD treatments like CBT and EMDR. The therapy takes several sessions
more than the other evidence-based treatments for PTSD, although the duration per
session is shorter (CBT and EMDR usually cover 1.5 hours per session). BEP differs
significantly from CBT and EMDR sessions in the additional sessions devoted to
giving meaning to the traumatic event and integration of the event into one’s life.
Clients and clinicians value interest in the broader meaning of the traumatic
Educational Pathways
In order to train as a BEP therapist, it required to be a trained mental health
professional with accreditation from their professional body (e.g. British Psychological
Society, HPC, UKCP, BABCP, BACP, IACP, etc).
Basic training, level 1
The basic BEP training level 1 consists of a three day course. In the first two
contiguous days of training, theory and practice succeed one another, and all the
elements of BEP are practiced in small groups. Half a year later, the third day of the
course follows which deals with the experiences with BEP in practice, and to get
feedback on your video footage of a therapy session. During this basic training, we
recommend that you should follow supervision of one of the BEP trainers. Fill out the
