    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.

    By Ahmet Nalbant, M.D. In the fall of 2016, the ACBS Turkey chapter came together to decide whether we would organize a CBS congress in Turkey. “This is serious business, think carefully!” was the statement that struck me most, when I try to recall those days. Yes, creating a CBS congress is a serious business, so why were we doing it? What were the reasons that made us, on one hand, bear all that effort, disappointments, and hopelessness and on the other hand, made us spend long hours of planning and decision making? Reasons seemed to date back to years ago.
