Guidance for Psychological Therapists launched

Enabling conversations with clients taking or withdrawing from prescribed psychiatric drugs

Launched on 5th December, this guidance was facilitated by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Prescribed Drug Dependence (APPG for PDD) in the last parliament by bringing together the main professional bodies representing psychological therapists in the UK, with key academics and professionals. 

This guidance was funded and steered by BACP, British Psychological Society (BPS) and United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), in conjunction with the APPG for Prescribed Drug Dependence Secretariat (all members of the Council for Evidence-based Psychiatry (CEP)), and the National Survivor User Network (NSUN).
