Silvia Flores and Emmanuel Thomas (PREP 16), attended the ABCT Convention in D.C. ABCT is the biggest convention of cognitive - behavioral scientist who come together to explore current developments in research. According to Emmanuel “this was a great opportunity to network with professionals in the field of clinical psychology. One large takeaway from the workshops was the fact that there is a need for more programs, outside of the brief interventions that prove to be effective short-term, that will sustain the positive results of said interventions in the long run.”
