Changes in the Board of Directors

We thank Kristoffer Månsson and Pierre Philippot for their achievements as treasurer and scientific coordinator in the past six years. 


At the last General Meeting (10th of September 2021) Arnold van Emmerik was elected Scientific Coordinator. Pierre Philippot was elected treasurer. 

Pierre Philippot on his new role as treasurer:

“As treasurer, I feel very committed to pursue the promotion and dissemination of the EABCT-supported Projects of the MA, as well as to develop further the Scientist Practioner Early Career Award. I am eager to help my colleagues on the Board to develop and finance tools supporting EABCT congress organisation and the Mobile academy. More generally, I am particularly sensitive to the issues related to inclusiveness as well as committed to promote an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy, rather than a brand-name approach.”
