The 7th Asian Cognitive Behavior Therapy Conference 2021

Embracing Differences, Celebrating Diversity

5-7 July 2021, Sunway University (100% Online)

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Organised and Sponsored by MSCP
Sponsored by Naluri
Supported by WCCBT


To be the most accessible conference in providing scientific updates and brief training classes on cognitive behavior therapy in the year 2021


To provide access to a free of charge, inclusive, international online conference to benefit CBT enthusiasts in times of pandemic lockdowns and financially critical circumstances.


The ACBTC2021 organizing committee is delighted to welcome you to the 7th Asian Cognitive Behavior Therapy Conference. We are excited to bring you a variety of international speakers and CBT trainers in our program.

We decided for the conference to be free of charge for the following reasons:

  • to address the disadvantages of global communities of CBT researchers and practitioners due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • contributors to the conference such as speakers, trainers, and committee members will be providing their services pro bono
  • resources, facilities, publicity and conference materials will be fully digital with no financial costs.

It is hoped that with this initiative, we are able to share the advancement of cognitive behavioral therapy to a wider audience in Asia, especially from developing countries who are usually limited in resources to attend international conferences. Despite being free of charge, we will ensure that the quality of papers are of international standing.

So, in a way, this conference will be a form of a CBT Woodstock Concert as a goodwill gesture for disadvantaged clinicians and academics who may be unable to afford paid conferences during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

We also have 4 Categories of Awards to give out! Click HERE for more information! The Young Professional Award application closes on 1 June 2021.
