The 9th edition of the International Congress of Cognitive Psychotherapy

For 2017, the International Association of Cognitive Psychotherapy/IACP has decided that the 9th edition will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania.

congresCognitive-behavioral therapy (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.

For 2017, the International Association of Cognitive Psychotherapy/IACP has decided that the 9th edition will take place in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania. Probably the first congress of CBT was the meeting organized in New York in 1976, followed by other major CBT meetings (e.g., Philadelphia in 1983) as precursors of the future world/international congresses. Previous editions of the IACP's Congress were organized in important academic centers, such as Umea (Sweden, 1986), Oxford (UK, 1989), Toronto (Canada, 1992), Catania (Italy, 2000), Gotenborg (Sweden, 2005), Roma (Italy, 2008), Istanbul (Turkey, 2011), and Hong Kong (China, 2014). Between 1992 and 2005 some of the IACP's Congresses were merged with the World Congress of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies/WCBCT (Copenhagen, Denmark 1995; Acapulco, Mexico, 1998; Vancouver, Canada, 2001; Kobe, Japan, 2004) and since 2005 it has been again organized as an independent world congress of the IACP, coordinated with the WCBCT (where IACP is also one of the organizers).

“Join us for a congress that will offer you a new perspective on the science of CBT and its clinical practice. We also invite you to discover Cluj-Napoca, the heart of Transylvania, Romania, a place with a unique cultural and historical heritage.”

Daniel O. David, Professor, Ph.D., President of the Congress
