Default AABT becomes ABCT

In a special election, the members of the Association for Advancement of Behavior Therapy have voted 4 to 1 to change the organization's name to "Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies." (Four people noted on their ballots that they would resign if the name change were to occur.) This change reflects the fact that AABT has included a large cognitive-behavioral contingent for a long time. I don't have any statistics but I've been attending AABT for about twenty years and I've never felt like I was in the minority.

By the way, if you are interested in CBT and you aren't familiar with AABT (now ABCT), I'd recommend checking them out at (no, I don't know if they'll be changing the url). The annual convention if a great way to stay up-to-date on new developments in CBT, attend good workshops, get CE credits, and hear some of the big names speak, and hang out with colleagues. The next convention will be November 17-20, 2005 in Washington, DC.
