Knowledge, Skills & Attitudes (KSA)

Knowledge, Skills & Attitudes (KSA)

KSA Candidates for Provisional Accreditation are those who do not have a relevant recognised Core Profession, and who must provide evidence as to how they meet this requirement for post graduate training in REBT/CBT.

It is recognised that the core Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (KSA) expected of an individual as a precursor for undertaking a formal Post Graduate training in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy/Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy may be acquired by alternative routes to acquiring a traditional relevant recognised Core Professional qualification or training.

Evidence of meeting the KSA criteria can be demonstrated by assembling a Portfolio or Evidence for Course Assessment, and in the case of AREBT members who already have a post graduate qualification but need to evidence equivalence to a core profession, such evidence can be made up of formal qualifications, formal and informal training, self-directed study, formal assessment of knowledge, skills and attitudes as demonstrated by course or job entry requirements, work related experience, and references attesting to knowledge, skills, competencies and attitudes.

Please consult the Guidelines for assembling and assessing KSA portfolios in full before commencing this part of your application.
