Conference Awards

We are delighted to announce the introduction of new Conference awards at the 2023 BABCP annual Conference in Cardiff. As our theme is ‘facing forwards’ we are looking to recognise the important contributions that are being made to advance cognitive and behavioural psychotherapy science and practice.

There are five award categories:

  • Best poster
  • Best Clinical Case or Service Development Presentation
  • Best scientific talk
  • Best newcomer
  • The Equity and Inclusion Award, in recognition of research and/or clinical practice that demonstrates outstanding advancement of equity and inclusion in the field of cognitive behaviour therapy

Who is eligible? 

You are eligible to be nominate yourself or another delegate for one of the awards if you are:

  • A Conference delegate at the awarding Conference (day or full Conference attendance)
  • A member of the BABCP
  • Have had a presentation/poster accepted for presentation and meet the criteria for the selected award category

The first prize for each category will be free registration at the following BABCP Conference and a certificate in recognition of excellence in the category. The judging panel may also award ‘highly commended’ in each category, which would be recognised with a certificate. The BABCP will also publicise the outcome of these awards, offering a platform to share the research or practice presented more widely.
