We are highly committed to the education of professionals.

Our belief is that the knowledge we possess should be shared. We are also interested in bringing the best and the brightest researchers and service providers to share their knowledge with our community. We achieve this through offering a rich and diverse calendar of professional continuing education workshops and a 2-year Training Institute for CBT focused on work with children and adolescents.
