Last week, Shirley, Laura and Faith attended the 50th Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Convention in New York City. It was a great opportunity for AnDY to meet with colleagues from around the globe, as well as disseminating some of our brilliant research. Laura organised a symposium with a range of international colleagues to discuss the ongoing work on Behavioral Activation as a treatment for depression, at which she presented her exciting findings on developing adolescent-specific treatments. Whilst there, Faith received the John R. Z. Abela Dissertation Award for her doctoral thesis, as the only British award winner – a big congratulations! All in all, a very successful trip for the team!
