Following on from great events in London (2013) and Dublin (2014) We are very pleased to announce that we are hosting the third BABCP ACT SIG / ACBS UK & Ireland Chapter Contextual Behavioural Science Conference, in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, from the 22nd to 25th November 2016.

The conference theme is 'Building Bridges' and our hope is to bring together many like minded communities to learn from each other. This includes people from basic science and applied practice across diverse areas of work. We hope that this event will be of interest to practitioners and researchers interested in ACT, FAP, DBT, Cognitive Therapy, Compassion Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Humanistic Therapies and others. We also wish to appeal to people working in therapeutic settings, in health, in mental health, counselling, psychotherapy, and also education, organisational contexts, coaching, and others.

One strong element of CBS is the tight link between basic research and applications and we hope to be able to offer tracks in RFT, and other theoretical and conceptual areas. There will be invited keynotes and dialogues to exemplify the Building Bridges theme, as well as an open call for submissions for symposia, in-conference workshops, skills classes, panel debates, and posters.

More information and speakers will be announced here soon but for now, please save the date.
