Korean Association of Child and Adolescent Behavior Therapy 

By Yunhee Shin 

The Korean Association of Child and Adolescent Behavior (KACBT) is a multidisciplinary nonprofit professional association with growing membership and an increasing number of alliances with like-minded organizations. KACBT has met with the preparatory committee of the Korean Association for Behavior Analysis to discuss managing licensure of Korean clinical behavior therapists in connection with international licensure. KACBT’s mission is to share ABA information and collaborate with behavior therapists, parents, and others. Since 2009, KACBT has held many meetings, seminars, and conferences, as well as a case conference in collaboration with Daegu Cyber University, which also has a VCS program and QASP-S program in its department of behavior therapy. We shared with them a list of Korean practice organizations and suggested a supervision training program. KACBT is focused on challenging behavior of children and adolescents, offering support to caregivers and practitioners via workshops and case conferences. We have also connected with many clinics and organizations to provide positive behavior support.
