48th CONGRESS of the EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR BEHAVIOURAL AND COGNITIVE THERAPIES.
From Applied Research to Quality Treatment: Improving Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Access to It Across the Lifespan.
September 5-8, 2018, Sofia, Bulgaria

Amongst the innovations which we plan to introduce to the EABCT is an emphasis on Diversity and Inclusion, something the Scientific Committee will be strongly encouraging.

The overall scientific theme is “Improving cognitive behavioral therapy and access to it across the lifespan”. Within the programme, we are also seeking to set up subject streams so that those with particular interests can maximize their ability to attend sessions focusing on these. In addition to the usual work on CBT with general adult populations, the “streams” will be:

General Mental Health

Children and Young People

Psychosis

General Psychological Processes and Neuroscience

Behavioural Medicine and Health

We are also seeking to promote other areas of particular importance including Trauma, Substance Misuse and problems with Inclusion and Diversity (and how to solve them).
