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. We are please to begin offering trainings via videoconferencing in early 2021!

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!
