Default Recommended Journals/Conferences

A participant in our Intensive Training Program writes: -snip- "can you recommend what you consider the best CBT journals, in terms of clinical relevance, etc. Also, -snip- what conferences/meetings do you recommend?"

For practitioners, I'd recommend Cognitive and Behavioral Practice (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/cog...e/#description) which is published by the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (www.abct.org). Cognitive and Behavioral Practice consistently has high-quality articles which are based on up-to-date research but which focus on real-life clinical practice. It is really useful.

For academia, there are many good options. I'd recommend doing a literature search on the topics you are interested in rather than limiting yourself to one or two journals.

In terms of conventions, we find the annual convention of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (www.abct.org) to be a great way to find out about new research, hear directly from the big names in CBT, and get some CE credit. Next year's convention will be November 15-18 in National Harbor, MD.
