The Cognitive Behavioral Analysis System of Psychotherapy (CBASP) Network Meeting is organised by the CBASP Network, and will take place in Munich, Germany from 21 to 24 June 2017

At this year’s Network Meeting we will address the issues of significant others, attachment, and early adversities in several lectures (J. McCullough, A. Buchheim, E. Binder, A. Jobst), and also current CBASP trials will be presented (E. Schramm, P. Klein, M. Hautzinger, C. Normann). In addition, the relationship between therapy outcome and the spectrum of early adversities will be discussed (J. Wiersma). Our other main intention is to present and teach CBASP as a lively form of psychotherapy, that you can experience in comparison with other forms of therapy at our conference (E.L. Brakemeier, S. Doering, E. Faßbinder). How should CBASP be further developed? Can we adapt CBASP for other disorders? Where are the limits? There will be lectures, a pro/con debate and a comprehensive workshop program addressing these issues. The evidence for the efficacy of CBASP in chronic depression has also been emphasized by a recent EPA guidance paper (Jobst et al. EPA Guidance on psychotherapy in chronic depression across Europe. European Psychiatry 2016; 33: 18-36)
