Counselling, Psychotherapy, Ethics and the Law

Counselling, Psychotherapy, Ethics and the LawAn essential workshop for counsellors and psychotherapists wanting to understand the law underpinning our therapeutic practice.

This is an highly participative workshop, which explores key aspects of the law relating to therapeutic practice in England and Wales.

The workshop will provide an overview of the law relating to therapy and examine how it relates to ethics, in the form of the BACP Ethical Framework.

What our Students Say

“It achieved a great balance between knowledge of the topic and making this interesting and close to us... the Tutor managed to make {the lecture} understandable to us with day to day examples. At the same time we felt that he was really an expert in the topic. From a HR perspective we were delighted to get so many people participating in the Q&A after the talk, as this is not the usual way our staff behaves.”
