Welcome to AACBT

The Australian Association for Cognitive and Behaviour Therapy Ltd. (AACBT) is a non-profit organisation which promotes the scientific study and ethical practice in understanding and changing cognitions and behaviours in applied settings. It is a multidisciplinary association for professionals with an interest in research and the application of established and emerging evidence-based Cognitive and Behaviour Therapies (CBT) to help bring about emotional, cognitive, and behavioural change. It is the national professional body for practitioners and researchers of cognitive and behavioural therapies, with branches in most Australian states.

The Association is concerned with the application of behavioural and cognitive sciences to understanding human behaviour, developing interventions to enhance the human condition, and promoting the appropriate utilisation of these interventions. It encourages, organises and supports professional development activities and the dissemination of published information about CBT. It also encourages and supports research in CBT including Mindfulness Based Cogntiive Therapy (MBCT), Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy and others.

The objectives of the Association are:

  1. To undertake and promote research and education into cognitive and behaviour therapies.
  2. To publish and disseminate information about developments in cognitive and behaviour therapies within Australia and other countries.
  3. To provide education and training in the principles and practices of cognitive and behaviour therapies.
