About the CACBT-ACTCC

Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies (CBT) are approaches to treating a wide range of health and mental health problems; CBT is based in the science of thought, behaviour, emotion and physiology.

Specific goals of CACBT-ACTCC include:


Training:

We plan to disseminate information about and provide training for those interested in CBT by organizing conferences, courses, workshops and by organizing the printing, publication and circulation of a newsletter containing articles, information and news relating to CBT. 

Advancing Knowledge:

We plan to promote scientific research in CBT and related concepts and to provide a forum for discussion of matters relevant to both the science and practice of CBT among members of all helping professions.

Advocating:

We will work to educate and inform the public about CBT and to advocate in relation to matters pertaining to CBT and to the Association.

Credentialing:

We plan to develop, maintain and apply standards for eligible practitioners of CBT by providing an opportunity for members who meet these standards to obtain an appropriate credential.
