MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS & SERVICES

The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) is dedicated to the scientific understanding and treatment of psychological problems. Membership in our organization is ideal for those who are committed to the understanding and amelioration of problems of the human condition through the investigation and application of behavioral, cognitive, and other evidence-based principles to assessment, prevention, and treatment.

Membership is open to all persons who agree with the purposes and objectives of ABCT and who are in good standing of either the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the National Association of Social Workers, or possess other acceptable qualifications and experience, and who are: (1) practicing clinicians; (2) engaged in research or other activities pertinent to the development and advancement of cognitive and behavioral therapies; or (3) interested in acquiring professional knowledge and competence in some aspect of the cognitive behavioral therapies with a view toward eventual participation.

Several benefits are afforded to our members to facilitate acquisition of professional knowledge and competence in general aspects of the cognitive and behavioral therapies. However, our members also benefit from access to an extraordinarily robust and active Special Interest Community, delving into treatment approaches, populations, and specific disorders.
