Sponsorship opportunities

Every year, one of the member organisations of the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies organizes a scientific congress in the area of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). From 10 – 13 September 2014 the Dutch Society for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy (VGCt) will host the congress ‘CBT: Bridging the gap between science and practice’ in the World Forum, The Hague.

Over the years a gap has developed between research into experimental psychopathology and research into treatment in academic settings on the one hand and cognitive behavioural therapy in clinical practice on the other. The aim of this congress is to bridge this gap.

The scientific committee headed by chairman Paul Emmelkamp will take care of an interesting scientific programme presented by influential researchers and clinicians, at least 15 keynote speakers, from all over the world.
