Michael Twohig named President-elect

Please join us in congratulating Mike Twohig who was recently elected as the President-elect for the Association for Contextual and Behavioral Science (ACBS).  ACBS basically started as the organization for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, but has quickly grown into a more general "behavioral" sciences organization.  They hold a week long conference every year, and the conference alternates between the US and another country.  It is in Minneapolis this summer and Berlin next.  The ACBS journal was launched two years ago.  The membership and board is made up of people from all over the world and people from many health professions.  There are 7000 members and this diversity makes it fun and challenging.  contextualscience.org/
