Division of Clinical Psychology

The Division of Clinical Psychology (DCP) exists to promote the professional interests of Clinical Psychologists across the UK.

The DCP works closely with a number of organisations including the NHS, the government, and multiple professional bodies and groups in the voluntary sector, to promote and develop clinical psychology as a body of knowledge and skills.

For any queries regarding the work of the Division of Clinical Psychology please contact the Member Networks Team


The DCP set up a PTMF Working Group in 2018 with the following remit:

  • to support, advise on and publicise implementation of the PTM Framework;
  • to make links with Experts by Experience (EbE’s) and other professions/groups/organisations wherever appropriate in order to achieve these aims;
  • to offer a central point for collating and disseminating information about developments and good practice in relation to PTM across a range of areas.

 The Working Group was asked to  initially focus on the following areas:

  • Training and Teaching Materials - to develop and disseminate
  • Research – to be a central point for liaison/collation/support for PTM-related research
  • Clinical services/providers: AMH; Child and Adolescent; Older Adult; Health: Forensic; Intellectual Disability  - to identify and disseminate resources and good practice.

The Working Group has been active since that point and, up to now, all their outputs have been hosted on the BPS main website.

This page will keep DCP members updated on progress and highlight any new content that is added to the BPS page.
