Dear Delegates

It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to this 8th Asian Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Conference hosted by Indian Association of CBT. With the utmost relevant theme ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapies across Health & Illness: Advances, Challenges & Way forward’, this event will bring together leading experts and practitioners not just from Asia but from around the world to discuss the latest developments and insights in the field of cognitive behaviour therapy.

I am honoured to have the opportunity to share my thoughts and insights with you all. Cognitive behaviour therapy is an area of study that has seen significant growth and development over the years, and this conference serves as a platform to share and learn from each other's experiences. During this conference, we will discuss the latest developments and trends in cognitive behaviour therapy, including new approaches, techniques, and technologies. We will also explore how we can make cognitive behaviour therapy more accessible and available to those who need it.

I encourage everyone to participate fully in the conference, to share their insights, and learn from each other. I am confident that the discussions and collaborations during this conference will lead to significant progress in advancing cognitive behaviour therapy in Asia.

I would like to express my gratitude to all the presenters, speakers, and attendees for their contributions and support in making this conference possible. Your expertise and knowledge will undoubtedly enrich our discussions and contribute to the advancement of cognitive behaviour therapy, not just for research and clinical services but also for community at large.

Once again, welcome to the 8th Asian Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Congress, enjoy best city, scrumptious food in New Delhi, and I wish you all a productive and enjoyable experience.
