    Growth in the popularity of cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) raises the issue of ensuring standards of training and practice. Because of the close association of psychology with CBT, this responsibility falls disproportionately upon psychology departments. This paper examines ways of establishing standards and argues that professional associations should lobby universities for adequate coverage of CBT in professional training programs. Means of staffing and delivering specialist courses in CBT as a means of upgrading and certifying professional standards are discussed.
