The Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) SIG is a collegial group of practitioners and researchers interested in new and empirically-supported assessment techniques and psychosocial interventions that identify and ameliorate ADHD-related deficits. We also seek to highlight related areas of research, including cognitive and neurological mechanisms of ADHD pathology, associated behavioral characteristics and outcomes, and the effects of comorbidity. Keeping with converging research findings, the ADHD SIG supports a developmental approach to understanding this disorder, and as such welcomes members focusing on child, adolescent, and/or adult populations.

Autism Spectrum and Developmental Disorders SIG


The Autism Spectrum and Developmental Disorders SIG is committed to sharing ideas and recent findings about children and adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disorders. Cognitive-behavioral treatments are relatively new for this population in terms of systematic evaluation. ASD and other developmental disorders affect millions of individuals in the US and elsewhere, many of whom are functioning in the average to superior range of cognitive abilities. The cognitive and language-based aspects of CBT are likely to be accessible and useful to many people with ASD and related disorders, and it is the mission of this SIG to advance efforts to make cognitive-behavioral treatments relevant and accessible to affected individuals. The SIG provides a forum for dissemination of relevant basic and clinical research findings, including descriptive outcome studies, the effects of comorbidity, and studies of CBT for individuals with autism spectrum and other developmental disorders.

It is the mission of the members of this SIG to ensure that our conceptual understanding of the processes of change in therapy keeps pace with the evolving technology used to foster such change.

Forensic Issues and Externalizing Behaviors SIG

The Forensic Issues and Externalizing Behaviors SIG is dedicated to the application of cognitive-behavioral principles to the understanding, prevention, assessment and treatment of externalizing behaviors that put individuals at risk for harming others and themselves, and for criminal justice involvement. Members strive to understand and find better solutions for addressing a broad range of antisocial behaviors that lead to immeasurable human suffering worldwide, and to improve the lives of some of society's most marginalized members and the lives of those impacted by antisocial behavior. Clinical and research activities span both community and forensic contexts and encompass such issues as: Antisociality, delinquency, anger, psychopathy, aggression, intimate partner and family violence, forensic assessment, oppositional and disruptive behaviors, sexual offending, addictions, recidivism, forensic treatment, policing, legal consultation, victimology, and various influences on antisocial behavior (sociocultural, dispositional, and environmental). A primary goal of the Forensic Issues and Externalizing Behaviors SIG is to provide a network for members to discuss up-to-date information related to research, application, and training on CBT principles relevant to at-risk and justice-involved individuals and their families.

Spiritual & Religious Issues in Behavior Change SIG


Spiritual and religious beliefs and practices are commonplace in the general population of North America today. In recognition of this fact, the past three decades have seen a substantial increase in research on the interplay of spirituality, religion and psychological variables; a recent PsycInfo search was able to identify over 28,000 scientific contributions to this area. However, the relevance of spirituality and religion to clinical practice remains poorly understood. As a result, many practitioners of empirically-supported treatments may be reticent to address spirituality and religion in the course of their work. This SIG therefore serves an important role in offering opportunities for ABCT members to take an empirically-based approach to the interesting yet understudied subject of spirituality and religion. We hope that through the general population's interest in religion and spirituality we can be a part of broadening the reach of ABCT whose more specific aims may not always be as generalizable to the main public. Through the combination of the work of ABCT and our SIG's efforts, we hope to be able to extend the good work of ABCT to more people.
