Our Association PDF Print E-mail

The Greek Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapies (GACBP) was founded in Thessaloniki in 1994 as an organization for the promotion of Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies (CBT). GACBP members are professionals form different mental health disciplines, like psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers and psychiatric nurses.

As means for the best possible promotion of CBT we have chosen to plan the following a) the development of psycho-educational CBT programs for people with psychological problems (scientific events open to the public, relevant books and leaflets), as well as b) training activities for the members of our association, and other interested mental health professionals.

The Greek Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapies became a member association of the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies (EABCT) in 1995. EABCT is an organization that brings together 44 individual associations from 31 different countries. EABCT has now over 25,000 individual clinicians and researchers in its membership making it one of the largest psychotherapy organizations in the world. For more information on EABCT please visit http://www.eabct.com)

A significant aim of our Association was the organization of a European CBT congress in Greece. We thus organized the 35th Congress of the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies (EABCT 2005) in Thessaloniki. EABCT 2005 Congress was rather unanimously viewed as a scientifically, organizationally, and socially very successful event. We believe that such an event promoted even more CBT in Greece as it gave the chance to Greek colleagues to attend such a significant scientific event.

A second significant aim of our Association was the development and implementation of a comprehensive and reliable CBT training program based on the EABCT training standards. Please learn more here.
