Membership Criteria

Membership is divided into categories within each professional stream (Modality). All streams are equivalent- so Coaching Psychology not more important than the Coaching and the Consulting Stream. All are useful, all are important- depending on practitioner orientation, training and purpose for working with clients. What is important from the ABCCCP perspective is that each stream has the best possible practitioners serving the buyers of the services in that stream.
