Description

Join us for 2001:
A BEHAVIORAL ODYSSEY


Dear Colleagues,da

This World Congress of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, July 17 through 21, 2001.

By July 2001 the new millennium will be well on its way. We will use this event to bring you together with a mix of the luminaries of the cognitive and behavioral therapies and the younger, newer voices who are showing us the path for the future.

You will be able to attend intensive learning experiences in full-day and half-day workshops, as well as a full complement of posters, panels, and roundtable discussions. One of the formats we are most excited about is to be called "World Rounds." These will be modeled after Grand Rounds. An international group of master clinicians will each interview a patient and then discuss the interview with the audience. "World Rounds" will highlight treatment conceptualizations and implementation and offer the audience an opportunity to both observe and question the interventions.

Vancouver, on North America' s west coast, is a particularly convenient destination for our Asian and Pacific Rim attendees. For our European friends, international carriers fly over the polar caps, shaving miles and therefore time, thus making this venue al most as close as cities on the Atlantic coast. Vancouver's mild weather, great restaurants, and beautiful natural surroundings will add to your enjoyment. Friday, with only a half-day of congress events, will be a good day for participants to see the city, go shopping, or to enjoy the unspoiled beauty just outside the city.

We encourage you to submit ideas for presentations and speakers, and look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver in 2001.
