The European Association for Behaviour Therapy (EABT) was formally established in 1976 but had its origins five years earlier when behaviour therapy groups in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK joined forces to create a European wide movement. In 1992 it added the title cognitive to become EABCT and now has over 25,000 individual clinicians and researchers in its membership making it one of the largest psychotherapy organizations in the world.
