Dear Colleagues

We are in the final stages of preparations to host the 45th EABCT Congress. We hope to replicate the success of the first World CBT Congress held in 1980 in Jerusalem. The list of keynotes, workshops, skills sessions, symposia and workshops suggests that we will. The program will include cutting edge research as well as diverse clinical presentations delivered by world renowned CBT clinicians and researchers. The content is being developed equally for scientists, practitioners and scientist-practitioners. We are committed to present cross-cultural topics and CBT related potential to peace-making and conflict resolution. We plan interesting and entertaining cultural and social activities.

Israel is a modern, multicultural, “startup nation”. Jerusalem is a 3000-year old city, sacred to three major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Its uniqueness, lying in the meeting of past and present makes it an ideal city to tour. You will have a chance to experience both historical and religious magnificence, as well as museums, art galleries, many different cultural districts, modern shopping centers and attractive entertainment possibilities, restaurants and nightlife spots.

Jerusalem is also an ideal base for interesting excursions. Because Israel is a small country, participants can easily reach the local attractive sites, such as the Mediterranean Sea, the Dead Sea, the historic Galilee and more.

You will experience an impressive, educational and enjoyable 45th EABCT Congress that you will recall for years to come!

We are looking forward to greeting you here!
