Printer-friendly version

Possible Credit Hours: 

  • 2-day pre-conference workshops: Approximately 13 hours
  • ACBS World Conference 2018 (attending all CE events): Approximately 24.5 hours

Types of Credit Available:

The pre-conference and conference workshops will be submitted to the Continuing Education (CE) Programme of the Ordre des psychologues du Québec and the Canadian Psychological Association.

Les ateliers pré-congrès et le congrès seront soumis au processus d'accréditation aux fins de la formation continue en psychothérapie de l'Ordre des psychologues du Québec et de la Société canadienne de psychologie.

The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science maintains responsibility for this program and its content. CE rules require that we only issue credits to those who attend the entire workshop. Those arriving more than 15 minutes late or leaving before the entire workshop is completed will not receive CE credits.

Information about the CE Process at the Event:

Please remember to scan in and out at the beginning and end of each session using our scanner system. If there is a problem and the scanners are not working, please make sure to sign in and out on the paper check-in sheet provided. We cannot give CE credit if you do not scan/sign in and out.

Please DO NOT SCAN in and out for coffee/tea breaks. CE credits are NOT available for IGNITE sessions, Chapter/SIG/Committee meetings, or other lunch time sessions.

You will need to complete an evaluation for each session you attend, in order to earn CEs (of any type offered). The evaluations will all be done online. You can complete your evaluations at These online evaluations must be completed by Wednesday, August 15, 2018. We will email you a printable copy of your certificate by September 15, 2018. This email will come to you from “ACBS”. If you do not receive it, please email

Certificate with Number of Hours Attended:

As an alternative to a CE certificate, some credentialing agencies (please check with yours) may accept a certificate with the number of hours attended. This requires that an individual verifies their attendance by signing in and out of each session that they attend during the event. The cost for this type of certificate is $10 CAD.


A $55 CAD fee will be required to earn CEs. If you attend either a pre-conference workshop(s), World Conference, or both, only $55 CAD is due. If you register for multiple events separately, please only pay the fee one time. This fee is non-refundable (unless you cancel your registration in its entirety before the cancellation deadline). Attendance verification (sign in/out) and evaluations also may be required.

Refunds & Grievance Policies: Participants may direct any questions or complaints to ACBS Executive Director Emily Rodrigues, 1-269-267-4249 or through the Contact Us link on this website.

  • CEs are only available for events that qualify as workshops, symposia, invited lecture, panel discussion, or plenary sessions. Poster sessions, IGNITE sessions, sessions shorter than 1 hour, and some other specialty sessions do not qualify for Continuing Education.
  • (Note: CE credits are only available for professionals. You may not earn CE credits with a student registration.)
