The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science
By reviewing ACBS, you will be participating in a world wide community that is dedicated to the development of a progressive psychology and related behavioral sciences more adequate to the challenge of the human condition. We are attempting to do this by fostering an open and responsible scientific culture that is non-hierarchical, self-critical, and that makes it easy for everyone to play a role. Our work is based on a scientific approach to studying psychological and other behavioral phenomena that emphasizes their interactive and holistic nature, and analyzes them by considering their current and historical context, linked to a pragmatic approach to truth.

Value Science or Magic: Thoughts on Addiction

By “radical” we mean that we go to the root of suffering: misinformation about what people want, how to get it, and –most importantly– how we can know these things. By “integrated” we mean that we aim simultaneously to cultivate individual health and awareness, promote social justice, peace, and freedom, and protect environmental quality. By “evidence-based” we mean that we apply scientific methods and principles.
