Message from the IACP President: The New Frontiers

Lata McGinn, Ph.D.
President, International Association of Cognitive Psychotherapy (IACP)
 

 

I am pleased to invite you to become a delegate at our next triennial convention in 2014 in Hong Kong. This conference will offer you the best of recent developments in cognitive and behavioral therapies in a unique international setting. Hong Kong offers you its expansive skyline, rolling hills and mountains, coastal landscapes, sea views and distinctive outlying islands. Hong Kong is also a shopper’s paradise, from its glitzy malls to its traditional street markets. Come learn about its history as a former colony of the British Empire, how it became a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1997, and all about modern day Hong Kong. I hope that you enjoy every moment of ICCP 2014, and that you will either come early or stay longer, to enjoy the people, culture and sites of Hong Kong. Join now so you can take advantage of the special discount IACP members receive toward convention fees. Please visit the 2014 conference website for more details (www.iccp2014.com).

Sincerely,

Lata McGinn, Ph.D.

Message from the ICCP President: The New Frontiers

Wing Wong, Ph.D.
President, 8th International Congress of Cognitive Psychotherapy (ICCP) 2014

Welcome to the Far East!

Open up new frontiers in the knowledge and practice of CBT!

Explore new geographical frontiers where CBT is flourishing!

Come to Hong Kong in 2014 for the 8th International Congress of Cognitive Psychotherapy (ICCP 2014) organized by the Chinese Association of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CACBT). The event will be held in Hong Kong between 24 and 27 June 2014 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Hong Kong is strategically positioned in the central hub of South East Asia, and is within easy reach of the major Asian countries such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia. To delegates from America, Europe and Australasia, ICCP 2014 will be a golden opportunity to globalize CBT beyond the western world. Hong Kong is also positioned right at the door-step of Mainland China, and will be an ideal spring-board for liaisons and skills importation to a potentially vast academic and research market.

Please mark your diary and look towards a memorable congress that you will cherish for years!

See you all in Hong Kong for the ICCP 2014!

Message from the President: 

Lata McGinn, Ph.D.

President, International Association of Cognitive Psychotherapy (IACP)

Our last triennial conference, chaired by Dr. Mehmet Sungur, held in Istanbul, Turkey, June 2-5, 2011 was an overwhelming success. Delegates were treated to an academic and cultural feast as we gained knowledge and discovered a city where the East and West come together in complete harmony. We thank Dr. Sungur for inviting us to his homeland and treating us as family. IACP is immensely grateful to him for his tireless efforts in making our 2011 triennial conference a success.

Please visit our photo and video gallery to see what went on and to watch personal interviews with the who’s who in CBT. Members have the added option to watch the keynote addresses from the conference.  Posters presented at the conference are also available as part of the Special Issue on-line now. Chaired by Stefania Borgo and Lucio Sibilia, the special issue can be downloaded from http://www.crpitalia.eu/psychomedeng.html (N.3 Year VI 2011). Key presentations at the conference will also be highlighted in a special series (edited by Keith Dobson and myself along with Mehmet Sungur) in an upcoming issue of IACP’s journal, the International Journal of Cognitive Therapy (IJCT)
