National Guidelines for Training in CBT

CACBT-ACTCC has developed training guidelines outlining what we believe to be are minimal standards to ensure proper training in the implementation of CBT.  The National Guidelines for Training in CBT were developed 2019 and officially released at the 9th Annual Conference in Montreal on May 4, 2019.
