Research Resources


A core mission of ABCT is to promote the scientific understanding of behavioral, cognitive, and biological contributors to health and well-being. The Research Facilitation Committee was formed specifically to support this aim. We strive to be a resource for all members, from those conducting research on a regular basis to those more clinically focused who want to be in-the-know on the latest approaches. Our goal is to connect ABCT membership with research-related resources year-round. We achieve this by (1) highlighting the research being conducted by ABCT members through our quarterly Spotlight on Researchers initiative, (2) providing information on relevant funding sources, (3) advancing opportunities for training in research methodology, (4) awarding a student research grant, and (5) sharing research-focused articles from the Behavior Therapist. We also aim to connect members who may work together to develop new research collaborations. We hope you will return to this site again and again as it is updated and becomes a home for all of your research needs!
