The theme for our 2024 conference is “Meaning making with cognitive and behavioural therapies“.
We invite you to consider presenting your work at this high profile national forum. We have encountered tremendous challenges in recent years in treatment delivery and research, but CBT practitioners and researchers have responded to the broader community’s needs with considerable resilience, creativity and ingenuity. The 2024 conference aims to showcase the cutting edge of evidence-based practice and science in cognitive and behavioural therapies. We are particularly interested in research that demonstrates how CBT can be delivered with creativity and ingenuity to ensure optimal outcomes despite challenging circumstances and presentations.

Presentation types availableA Symposium is a focused session in which speakers present on a common theme, issue or question. A chairperson briefly introduces the topic, followed by typically four (4) individual speakers. Optionally, the session ends with concluding remarks by a discussant, followed by an opportunity for audience members to ask questions and general discussion. A symposium session will run for up to 60 minutes, noting that the session Chair is responsible for all timing.
A symposium can take the form of a Panel Discussion if preferred, which follows the above notes, excepting that the format is typically more free-flowing (more back & forth between presenters).
Individual Oral Presentations must present the empirical results of a research project, which can include critically evaluating the empirical findings of others in the form of a meta-analysis or critical review.
