It felt like a recognition of my experience in this field and an opportunity to give voice to an unspoken issue, especially in the fields of mental health. It gave me a chance to bring to an international body-psychotherapy community information that could make them aware of the pain and misery caused by the perverse effects of racism to the body and psyche of a black individual. …“

IBA dues 2

Trainees and most of CBTs belong to a local society, or a self organised training group. In this case they pay their IIBA dues to their local society, or group, who will send them in one sum, and in due time, to the IIBA.

For some reasons, a CBT (or upper status) could also exist among the community as a "Member at Large" (not being part of a local society).
in this case, the member should pay IIBA dues individually to the IIBA.

All IIBA memberships must be renewed annually. Dues for the coming year should be paid from August 1 until October 30.
A special administration fee of 10 % will be charged for dues payment from October 30 until December, 31.

Lost contact with us for a time ? It's simple to re-join the IIBA.
Members who have allowed their membership to lapse can rejoin. Please contact our Back-Office. >>     .
