Who Can Join?
Membership of the BPA is open to anyone who is interested in Psychodrama, Sociodrama and Action Methods. The BPA welcomes members from all cultures, and you do not have to be resident in the UK to join. If you are not a qualified psychodramatist or sociodramatist, you can join as an Ordinary Member at a reduced fee.
What will I get if I join the BPA?
Membership runs from January each year and normally includes two journals and six (bi monthly) electronic newsletters. These publications contain theoretical articles, research news, news about the membership and the Association, information about workshops and forthcoming events, plus views, reports and correspondence.
By joining the BPA you will become part of a worldwide network of psychodrama professionals who enthusiastically deliver, promote and develop their expertise.
BPA members also pay a reduced rate at the annual conference.
When do members meet?
The BPA has an Annual General Meeting and Conference and there are related conferences and workshops throughout the year. Members also serve on the Executive Committee and sub-committees, promoting the aims of the Association together.
What types of membership are there?
Ordinary Membership: Ordinary membership is open to anyone interested in psychodrama. Benefits include BPA's journal and newsletter and a discount on conference fees. Ordinary membership does not convey status as a psychodrama practitioner.
Trainee Membership: This is for people enrolled on a psychodrama training course which is validated by the BPA.
Practitioner Membership: Practitioner status registers you as a Psychodrama Psychotherapist with the BPA. It is normally awarded by a BPA training school. People trained at a non-UK psychodrama training school may also apply to the Accreditation Committee for Practitioner status with the BPA. Reasons to do so may include: A) You are moving to the UK and wish to practise here as a UK psychodramatist; B) You are practising as a psychodramatist in another country and believe BPA registration would provide greater credibility than registration available there; C) You wish to subsequently apply for Trainer status with the BPA.
Trainer Membership: Application for this status is via the Accreditation Committee.
£100 (£50 + £50)
