To our members and behavioral healthcare providers and scientists in the Philadelphia area: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person continuing education events have been suspended until further notice. We hope to be able to resume our calendar of events once the risk presented by public gatherings has subsided.

A MESSAGE from the
PBTA President

For years, PBTA has provided quality training and a sense of community for cognitive and behavioral therapists, researchers, and students throughout the Philadelphia area. From a wide range of backgrounds, we have come together around a common mission to disseminate effective treatment to the behavioral healthcare field and to raise awareness in the public. We are proud of this mission, and we hope you'll join us!
