The 9th International Congress of Cognitive Psychotherapy – Cluj-Napoca – 2017
The registration for the 9th Congress of the IACP (http://www.the-iacp.org/) is now open at: http://iccp2017.org/
The Congress will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania, from 29th of June to 1st of July, 2017.
We have a very important Congress theme – integrative and multimodal CBT -, with major implications for current science and practice of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Indeed, CBT is an umbrella for a large number of evidence-based psychological treatments. CBT is therefore becoming the golden standard in the field of psychotherapy. This Congress will aim to: (1) present the state of the art applications of CBT in a large variety of clinical and non-clinical contexts; (2) present the latest research in the field with powerful clinical implications; (3) increase the internal cohesion of CBT, by moving the field from various “schools” to an integrative and multimodal approach; (4) promote CBT as the best platform for integrating psychotherapy in the evidence-based framework; and (5) stimulate frontier research in CBT and infuse CBT with frontier research from related fields.
A combination of (1) outstanding keynote speakers (Gerhard Andersson, Judith Beck, David M. Clark, Pim Cuijpers, Raymond DiGiuseppe, Daniel Freeman, Martin Hautzinger, Steven Hayes, Stefan Hofmann, Steven Hollon, Robert Leahy, Lata McGin, John Riskind, Philip Spinhoven, Mehmet Sungur); (2) workshop presenters (Gerhard Andersson, Judith Beck, Raymond DiGiuseppe, Kristine Doyle, Thomas Dowd, Arthur Freeman, Daniel Freeman, Steven Hayes, Robert Leahy, Lata McGin, John Riskind, Tullio Scrimali, Mehmet Sungur, Ed Watkins) and (3) symposia presenters will try to elucidate the challenges of integration that CBT faces today. Also, we planned two stimulating round tables (1) Integrative and multimodal CBT: Implications for practice (Daniel David, Raymond DiGiuseppe, Steven Hayes, Stefan Hofmann, and Robert Leahy) and (2) Integrative and multimodal CBT: Implications for research (Gerhard Andersson, Pim Cuijpers, Daniel David, Daniel Freeman, and Steven Hollon), to further debate and understand the future of CBT.
Your own contribution, as participant to these events and/or as presenter in our symposia and poster sections, is fundamental for the evolution of CBT.
You can also benefit of the fantastic touristic places in Romania (e.g., Danube Delta, Dracula-related trips, famous Romania monasteries, medieval cities, traditional area like Maramures, etc.) and other close Eastern European countries.
We are looking forward having you in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania! Please disseminate this announcement to people who might be interested to participate.
Yours, Daniel David, Professor, Ph.D.,
The President of the Congress
