On Thursday 23rd September the ACT Special Interest Group and University College London had the pleasure of hosting an evening debate on the “Future of CBT”, featuring three distinguished speakers: Dr David Veale, Prof Steve Pilling and Prof Steve Hayes. The debate was chaired by Eric Morris, Secretary of ACT SIG. The debate attracted an audience of 300, who had braved the wild weather to attend UCL that evening.

Each of our speakers presented their perspective on how CBT may change in the future, and what research strategies are likely to progress the scientific development of evidence-based behavioural and cognitive approaches. The evening resulted in some lively discussion, as our speakers debated the points made and commented on questions from the audience.

If you would like to listen to the debate the audio is available for download (50mb mp3: Future of CBT Debate).

The presentations from Dr David Veale and Prof Steven Hayes are also available: David Veale Future CBT.ppt Steve Hayes ACT CBT talk.ppt

Many thanks again to our speakers, University College London, and those who attended this unique event.
