On behalf of the Bulgarian Association for Cognitive-Behavioral Psychotherapy, we have the honor and pleasure to welcome you to the 48th Annual Congress of the European Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (EABCT 2018) which will be held on September 5–8, 2018 in Sofia – the capital of Bulgaria, one of the oldest states in Europe.
We will ensure that the EABCT Congress in 2018 will be the most scientifically important event in the history of psychotherapy in Bulgaria and will make a significant contribution to European and indeed world-wide progress and we feel privileged to be its hosts.
Sofia is a charming city which takes pride in its three thousand year history and rich cultural heritage. In the very center of the town four temples – an orthodox one, a catholic one, a synagogue and a mosque – are located in close proximity, forming an original quadrangle of mutual respect between people of different religions. Today our capital is still an island of religious tolerance. Sofia will offer you a remarkable colorful blend of past and present, East and West, traditional and modern, which can be found in every single element of the dynamics of life and the city’s landscape, which has also integrated the remains of the recent socialist past.
We believe the rich and varied scientific program, the diversity of colors and the coziness of our city and the traditional Bulgarian hospitality will make your stay in Sofia unforgettable.
We will be happy to welcome you to Sofia in 2018.
Most cordial regards,
Оn behalf of the Board of BACBP,
Dr Irina Lazarova, President of BACBP
