Philadelphia Behavior
Therapy Association

Check out our publication The EBP

The Philadelphia Behavior Therapy Association is an interdisciplinary organization that promotes the study and practice of scientifically-based cognitive and behavioral treatments in the Philadelphia region. PBTA has a long tradition of providing education, promoting dissemination, and facilitating networking among the local cognitive- and behaviorally-oriented community. PBTA sponsors lectures, workshops, and discussions for the purpose of educating practitioners, clinical scientists, students, and the public on the effective practice of psychological treatments.

PBTA was honored to recognize Dr. Philip Kendall from Temple University as its 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award winner. The award is given to individuals in the Philadelphia area who have made significant contributions to cognitive and behavioral psychology. Dr. Kendall received his award in a ceremony at Arcadia University's Grey Towers Castle, where he presented some of his newest research on anxiety in young people.
