CONFERENCE WELCOME MESSAGE

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us for what will be a clinically relevant, intellectually stimulating, and vibrant conference. CACBT 2021 (May 6-8, 2021) will be a virtual conference and we have an incredible line up of keynote addresses, workshops, symposia, and posters.

The CACBT 2021 Conference will highlight the amazing CBT talent we have in our own country, including keynote addresses from Drs. David A. Clark and Christine Chambers. We are also bringing internationally renowned CBTers to Canada. Dr. David Tolin, President of our sister organization, the Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies, will be presenting a one-day workshop on May 6th on the latest advances in exposure therapy. We also have 6 three-hour workshops (one hosted in French) and 5 symposia. In addition, we will feature research and clinical posters that were accepted last year (but could not be presented due to the COVID-19 pandemic) as well as new poster submissions. We will end our conference with a keynote address by renowned speaker, Dr. Timothy Caulfield who will present on Health Resilience in the Age of Fear and Misinformation.

In addition to presentations on Zoom, our conference delegates will also be able to interact with poster presenters, exhibitors, and other attendees like they would in person, using a platform called Gathertown. We will set up a virtual conference floor where delegates can move their avatar around the room. When they come up to a poster, the poster presentation will pop up on their screen for easy viewing. In addition, when their avatar is in close proximity to other delegates’ avatars, those individuals’ video screens will open up so that you can network and discuss the latest research and clinical findings. 

Check out our conference website regularly for updates on our program (CACBT 2021 Virtual Conference). There is still time to be part of this exciting conference! The deadline to submit posters is February 26, 2021.

We hope to see you at CACBT 2021!!
