47th CONGRESS OF THE EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR BEHAVIOURAL AND COGNITIVE THERAPIES 13 – 16 SEPTEMBER 2017 / ISTANBUL – TURKEY
YOU ARE INVITED TO ISTANBUL
It is an honor and pleasure for the Turkish Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapies (TACBP) to welcome you to the 47th Annual Congress of the European Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (EABCT’17) which will be held in İstanbul on September 13 – 16, 2017.
The magnificent city of Istanbul expands on Europe and Asia connecting east with the west and has been the venue for Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. That is why Istanbul will be rewarding in different ways by offering history, culture, sights, sounds, tastes and smells that will carry you swiftly to another culture and another time.
The TACBP and EABCT will deliver a high quality congress which hopefully will turn out to be a memorable event both scientifically and socially. As we believe that the scientific success of a congress depends on the contribution of the delegates, we hope that many of you will be able to get actively involved in the congress. The programme will cover all areas of behavioural and cognitive therapies including innovative and controversial developments and will certainly give emphasis on child and adolescent psychology as well.
The theme of the congress reflects the central motive of the event that is to bridge closer links between science (evidence based psychotherapies) and the art of its practice in a skilled manner.
We have no doubt that the Turkish hospitality, the charm of Istanbul and the fine scientific programme will make the difference between an ordinary congress and a truly memorable experience.
We look forward to seeing you in Istanbul to establish closer links between colleagues from all over the world. Let’s hope to meet in Istanbul in September 2017 in the city which streaches onto two continents, connecting east with the west.
