ABCT's 2017 Election Results
We are delighted to announce the result of ABCT's 2017 elections.
Congratulations go to:
Bruce Chorpita, Ph.D., 2017-2018 President Elect
Risa B. Weisberg, Ph.D., 2017-2020 Representative-at-Large and liaison to Membership Issues
All three bylaw changes were approved: Mission Statement, Purposes, and changes to our membership categories.
The membership has voted to revise our mission statement to read:
The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies is a multidisciplinary organization committed to the enhancement of health and well-being by advancing the scientific understanding, assessment, prevention, and treatment of human problems through behavioral, cognitive, and biological evidence-based principles.
While ABCT's name and identity will ensure that we maintain our core focus on Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, the Board hopes that our slightly revised mission statement will encourage further exploration and collaboration in a broader range of range of mental health areas, including biological mechanisms of behavioral and cognitive therapies. In this way, we seek to foster a welcoming and innovative environment for a range of researchers and clinicians who are passionate about advancingempirically effective cognitive and behavioral treatments.
We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Please join us in congratulating our new leaders Bruce and Risa.
