54th Annual Convention 2020 |
Currently, ABCT is planning for the full in-person convention experience in Philadelphia, November 19-22, 2020. If local, state and federal laws prevent most of us to meet, the convention may take the form of a virtual or hybrid event. An announcement will be posted on the convention web page and an e-mail will be sent to membership and stakeholders in late August with a final decision. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we pursue our options in this ever-changing environment. Thank you.
PROGRAM CHAIR: Shannon Wiltsey Stirman, Ph.D.
Philadelphia Marriott Downtown

ABCT's annual convention brings the cognitive-behavioral community together to explore current developments in research and practice and to stimulate thinking about the myriad issues that surround CBT and how it intersects with other disciplines. While attending the annual meeting, in addition to networking with your peers, you will experience provocative speakers, professional development sessions, local culture, and face-to-face roundtables with mentors, colleagues, and luminaries.
