LI-ACBS will provide an excellent way for its Long Island members to stay informed about local events and/or if you so choose, to become even more personally involved in the ACT & CBS community. Mutual peer ACT supervision groups, local ACT & related workshops, discounts to registering for such workshops, study groups, training, as well as networking opportunities within the third generation CBT and more generally the contextually based psychotherapy community.
