The NCCBT Network only accepts Visa and Mastercard through WildApricot Payment services by AffiniPay. All authorizations or declines come from their system. Please first verify that your Visa or Mastercard is valid and not expired. Though rare, there are instances a card may not be accepted. For instance, AffiniPay may not be contracted with overseas banks that issue credit cards. If you experience problems with your valid and not expired Visa or Mastercard, please email email@example.com and we will try to help you resolve the issue.
No. For electronic payments, we have transitioned to using Wild Apricot Payments (AffiniPay) to allow a seamless and secure payment process.

We welcome anyone with an interest in learning more about CBT or related evidence based therapies. But, non-CBT clinicians should know that this professional association’s mission is specifically to disseminate information, and to educate/train local professionals in the theory and practice of CBT. So, this is not a professional association to join unless you are interested in CBT or related evidence-based therapies. Our Forum content, social events and workshops all support this mission.
Entities whose primary focus is on building databases or marketing aggressively are not welcome to join.
Please see our Membership page to see all of the benefits of membership.
The Clinical Directory profiles use common social media image sizes. For profile photos, you’ll get the best results with a square .jpeg format image that’s 110 pixels x 110 pixels. The .png format works, too, though those images tend to be larger file sizes.
If you’ve entered a valid link to a functioning website, please carefully check the url you entered on your profile. In almost every case, users have inadvertently entered a space before, after or between words in the url.
You do not need to enter ‘http://’ or ‘www’ before your url.
If you continue having problems after checking your url for spelling and spaces, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Log into our website and select your name in the top left or click here to view your profile. Select Edit and change whichever fields you wish to edit.
Please email email@example.com if there is a category or selection you think would benefit our membership.
If you don’t renew your membership by the renewal date, we will remove your listing after 14-days.
The Clinical Directory allows members of the NCCBT Network to describe their practices and share information about their professional activities with each other. Only members of the NCCBT Network have access to the directory. This is not a directory accessed by the public.
After logging into our website, the Clinical Directory will appear in the main menu. Do a quick search by typing in the name of a therapist you know or selecting the various categories of interest. Go to Advanced Search to do a more detailed search based on every criterion available to search. Click on the clinician whose profile you are interested in viewing. Contact them either by using the button or emailing them directly.
If you do not wish to have your information listed in the private Clinical Directory, click on the "Privacy" link under the "EDIT PROFILE" button, then click "EDIT PROFILE" and uncheck "Show Profile to Others".

NCCBT allows posts announcing upcoming workshops, symposia, and other professional educational opportunities. To post, the following criteria must be met: one or more of the presenters must be an NCCBT member; and the topic must cover CBT-related treatment, assessment, or research, or cover methodological approaches used in the said research, or cover training or supervision aspects of teaching CBT. Please refrain from repeated announcements of the same event. Please read our complete Google Group Guidelines HERE.
Yes, for in-person workshops, coffee, tea, snacks, and a catered buffet lunch are offered and covered by the workshop registration fee.
Workshops are held either online via Zoom or at the David Brower Center at 2150 Allston Way, Berkeley, CA 94704, directly across from UC Berkeley, near downtown BART, with free parking underneath the building at the Oxford Garage.
Webinars via Zoom and in-person, one-day workshops for 6 or 7 CE units are offered. Sometimes two-day workshops and half-day workshops are offered. To see a list of previous workshops, visit our Events page.
Early registration offers you a lower price for the workshop, and secures you a place at the in-person workshop, should it become full. It also gives the workshop planners more time to ensure that the event runs as smoothly as possible.
As member, you will receive notification (1-2 months before the event) that it is time to register for a workshop. The notification will have a description of the workshop. You will be instructed to go to the website (www.nccbt.net) and click on the link to register where the event is listed. Both the email notification and the website will tell you about the speaker, workshop content, date/time, and available CEUs.
The purpose of the workshops is to learn from experts in the field about evidence-based treatments that fall under the CBT umbrella. Workshop presenters are national, international, and local colleagues. These workshops also provide opportunities to learn about and network with local CBT colleagues.
These events are usually free because the cost is covered by your membership dues.
This varies given the day, time, and location of the event. People wear anything from business casual (most) or casual to slightly formal dress. You may choose to wear more casual attire for a daytime event at a Brewery and dress up a bit more at an evening event in the city. This truly depends on the circumstances and the comfort of each individual.
As a member, you will receive a notification (1-2 months before the event) that it is time to register for a social networking event. You will be instructed to go to the website (www.nccbt.net) and click on the link to register where the event is listed.
Social networking events are held at beautiful San Francisco venues such as the Hyatt Regency ballroom overlooking Union Square, downtown San Francisco, Epic Steak Restaurant under the Bay Bridge, Park Chalet Restaurant at Ocean Beach, and other venues in the Bay Area.
Social networking events were offered twice a year, however, since COVID, we sadly had to limit these events. We are beginning to reintroduce our socials. Please check our Events to see when the next event will be.
It is important to RSVP if you plan to attend a social networking event and let us know if you will be bringing a guest. An accurate count of the number of people attending allows the planning committee to order the right amount of food and beverages. If you indicated that you plan to attend a social networking event but later realize you cannot attend, please change your RSVP to let us know.
Social networking events offer opportunities to meet, socialize, discuss your work/interests, learn about others’ work/interests, and exchange ideas with like-minded colleagues. These events provide opportunities to get to know your Bay Area colleagues and for them to get to know you. It is appropriate to bring business cards to these events and to bring flyers to advertise groups, research recruitment, or other professional endeavors involving CBT and related evidence-based therapies. If you have a question about a social event, please contact email@example.com.
These events are only open to active members. We prefer you register for the event in advance to have an accurate count for our food and beverage order, however, if you are unable to RSVP in advance, we will likely be able to accommodate you.
