Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
We are delighted to invite you to join the IABCP at a special event that marks the Irish Branch’s contribution to BABCP 50th Anniversary celebrations.
The Conference will be hosted in association with Trinity College Dublin which held Europe’s first Behavioural Therapy conference in September 1969 and together we will celebrate the history of CBT in Ireland, the activities of its current membership and start to look to future directions for CBT in Ireland. This two-day conference will be held in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute (TBSI) on 4 and 5 May 2023.
There will be a welcome reception the evening before the opening day in the TBSI Knowledge Exchange. Day 1 will trace the history and development of CBT in Ireland before you hear keynote addresses from Paul Salkovskis, Craig Chigwedere and BABCP President Saiqa Naz. The day will also offer a choice of parallel sessions covering Diversity and Inclusion, CBT skills for young worriers and an update on the IABCP accreditation process
On Day 2 delegates will be able to listen to keynotes from Jennifer Wild and David Clark and attend panel discussions with health service leaders on developing the CBT workforce on both sides of the border and New Ways of Working for CBT Psychotherapists in Ireland.
If you would like to submit a poster on Evidence-Based Psychotherapies please submit your abstract (max 250 words) online here by 15 March. There will be separate prize for the best student poster and the best poster from qualified professionals. You will be informed if your poster has been accepted by 31 March. To display your poster you must register to attend the conference.
Registration fees are for two days' attendance, excluding social events.
IABCP/BABCP members - €60/£50

To keep costs low for delegates, lunch will not be provided but there are dozens of food options in the immediate neighbourhood and delegates are welcome to bring their chosen food & drinks into the Knowledge Exchange.
The saving for IABCP/BABCP members is higher than the costs of membership. You can join BABCP here
