Congresses organised by the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy are well known not only for the quality of the scientific programme but also for the opportunity provided by the social programme for delegates to meet, socialise and enjoy themselves. The World Congress programme in Berlin is designed to ensure that there will be plenty of opportunity to meet people from across the world in a relaxed and informal setting. Whether this is wining and dining together, dancing and partying into the earlier hours or just in a relaxed conversation at the end of a busy day we know that Berlin will help forge new friendships and contacts between delegates from all corners of the globe.

Berlin is famous for its culture, its food and its energy so there will plenty for delegates to explore and experience in the city during, before and after the congress. However, we do hope that you will take advantage of the social programme we have put together for the congress.
