Association for Contextual and Behavioral Science (ABCS)
The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS) is a worldwide nonprofit professional membership organization associated with ACT and RFT, among other topics. The term "contextual behavioral science" refers to the application of functional contextualism to human behavior, including contextual forms of applied behavior analysis, cognitive-behavioral therapy and evolution science. ACBS hosts an annual international conference. The conference is multiple days and multiple tracks and provides quality training in CBS, RFT, ACT among other relevant topics (e.g., FAP). The ACBS website has resources such as a Peer-Reviewed ACT Trainer List, a function to find an ACT therapist in a particular area and access to research articles, protocols and other clinical resources (more resources are available for individuals who join the organization). ACBS's flagship journal is the Journal of Contextual and Behavioral Science (JCBS).
