Dear Colleagues,

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Organizing Committee of the 10th World Congress of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies (WCCBT 2022) has decided to postpone the conference. The decision to postpone the conference was in order to minimize costs and risks for all involved during the prolonged COVID-19 global pandemic. The congress is now scheduled from June 1 (Thursday) to 4 (Sunday), 2023 at COEX Convention Center in Seoul, Korea.

Seoul, the capital of Korea, is the heart of Korea’s culture and education as well as politics and economy. From traditional culture and historic places to entertainment(K-pop), Digital, and IT, Seoul is home to many great factors that draw a large number of tourists every year.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapies remain the gold standard in evidence-based practice in the mental health field. With the theme of “Global CBT Dissemination, Accessibility, and New Technology”, the program of WCCBT2023 will include plenary presentations, symposia, workshops, master classes, and sessions. The primary goal of the Congress’ scientific program is to identify ways with which to develop and implement CBT to meet the needs of clients from diverse societal and cultural backgrounds. It will also address the challenges when using cutting-edge technologies, and other innovations in the field, to overcome barriers in CBT utilization and dissemination.

WCCBT 2023 will be an opportunity for Eastern cultures to meet Western cultures and provide a podium for thought-provoking discussions regarding the future of CBT, given different historical, philosophical, and theoretical approaches to our field, especially in this new era of fast-growing technologies. The Congress will offer you the ideal opportunity to connect and reconnect with CBT professionals from all over the world.

We look forward to sharing this unique event and welcoming you to Seoul, Korea 2023.
