Abstract & Travel Grant Information (2021)

The theme for our 2021 conference is Recovery and Reconnection.

AACBT has always celebrated advances in cognitive and behavioural therapies and evidence-based practice. We now find ourselves in a new era of clinical science, discipline diversity and comorbid mental health profiles. Extending the very best traditions of previous conferences, we plan to represent the cutting edge of evidence-based practice and science in both cognitive and behavioural therapies, as well as third wave approaches. We invite you to consider presenting your work at this high profile national forum. Conference information is available here. Tickets are on sale soon!
