5th Panhellenic Conference of Cognitive Psychotherapies

Patras, November 10-12, 2017, Conference & Cultural Center of the University of Patras


Dear colleagues,

On behalf of  Organizing and Scientific Committee, we have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the 5th Panhellenic Conference of Cognitive Psychotherapies, that will be held at the Conference & Cultural Center of the University of Patras, on November 10-12, 2017, in Patras, Greece.

The 5th Panhellenic Conference is dedicated to Aaron T. Beck, father of Cognitive Psychotherapies, and sets a milestone as it’s been a decade since the 1st conference that was also held in Patras.

During the last decade, we have witnessed the outstanding progress of cognitive behavioral therapies in Greece with the development of three official Cognitive Behavioral Societies, which collaborate and undertake alternatively the organization of each conference.

The 5th Panhellenic Conference has a wide range of topics including clinical dilemmas and treatment deadlocks as well as the development of cognitive therapies after the addition of new approaches (the so-called “third wave” of “third generation”).

The programme includes keynote lectures, applied workshops, panel discussions and round tables, paper and poster sessions.

We are looking forward to seeing you in charming Patras to share professional experiences and opinions.
