    ACBS Student Representative Sonia Singh here! It’s the end of August and I am still riding the natural research, clinical, and community high of the 16th annual Association of Contextual Behavioral Science World Conference. This year the conference occurred in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and there was so much to do in and around the conference. After the 2 day pre-conference workshops, the conference poster session and the chapter/special interest group social on Wednesday evening was a wonderful, low pressure social environment to see old friends and meet new people.

    Are you a researcher or student searching for a funding source for any contextual behavioral science-related project? ACBS provides two grants, up to $5,000 USD, for research that advances the field of contextual behavioral science. The Research Development Grant applications are approved by the ACBS Grants Committee, chaired by Megan Kelly, Ph.D. Projects eligible for the grant are relatively broad, as any topic within the array of CBS will be considered.

    I am thrilled to announce that the Journal of Contextual Behavioral Science (JCBS) received our first Clarivate Analytics (formerly of Thomson Reuters) Journal Impact Factor in the 2018 release of the Journal Citations Report. Our impact was estimated at 1.216, indicating that articles published by JCBS in 2015 and 2016 were cited an average of 1.2 times in 2017. To further contextualize, this puts JCBS 91st (28th percentile) amongst 127 Clinical Psychology journals (Web of Science’s designation for JCBS).

    By Graciela Rovner, Ph.D.    We are still enjoying the afterglow of the first ever ACBS conference that had only European trainers and presenters, and the conference was held in May 2018 in the vibrant Polish city of Poznań. The ACBS Poland chapter, with Hubert Czupala on the lead, did an amazing job organizing this event, supported by the Institute of Clinical Psychology at the Poznań University of Medical Science and the Poznań Convention Bureau.

    Congratulations to Jessica Stark on being selected as one of the Student Spotlight Award recipients! The purpose of this award is to highlight students who are doing important work in the CBS community whether for research, clinical, and/or volunteer-humanitarian efforts. This is a way to highlight their achievements, let the ACBS community know important work students are doing, and possibly provide a platform for mentoring/collaboration/professional development/conversations around highlighted areas.

    When ACBS was founded in 2005, we established as our vision “...[dedication] to the alleviation of human suffering and the advancement of human well-being through research and practice grounded in contextual behavioral science.” Over the past thirteen years, we’ve seen great progress in the accumulation of data supporting CBS theories and clinical approaches, the dissemination of CBS interventions to problems of high social importance, the refinement of CBS as a scientific strategy, and the growth and maturation of ACBS as a community.
