British Association of Christians in Psychology (BACIP)
The British Association of Christians in Psychology (BACIP; previously known as the Network of Christians in Psychology, NeCIP) is a UK-based organisation for Christian professional and student psychologists in academic and applied settings. We have over 280 members representing qualified and trainee clinical, occupational, educational, counselling, and academic psychologists, in addition to secondary school psychology teachers and a strong contingent of undergraduate and graduate students. BACIP is led by a Steering Group, which determines the policy and activities of the organisation. The Steering Group is assisted by a part-time employed Administrator.
BACIP was founded in 1989, and from the outset we have been concerned with issues of integrating Christian faith and psychology at all levels, from the personal to that of society and its institutions. Our other aims include:
Supporting and encouraging Christian psychologists in their places of work and students studying psychology as Christians psychology students, particularly when conflicts become apparent;
