Three staff members of the University of the Free State (UFS) recently attended the 39th Annual Congress of the European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies (EABCT) in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Dr Stephen Walker, Ms Chrisma Pretorius and Ms Marnelle van Rooyen, all from the Unit for Professional Training and Service in the Behavioural Sciences (UNIBS) represented the UFS at the congress.

The title of Dr Walker’s presentation was “The applicability of the maladaptive cognitive schema construct to the multi-ethnic South African context”.

Ms Pretorius, a Ph.D. student in Psychology, gave two presentations, namely “Ethnic differences in worry: A South African perspective” and “Worry, meta-cognitive beliefs and intolerance in a non-clinical multi-ethnic sample of university students” respectively.

Ms Van Rooyen, also a Ph.D. student in Psychology, presented “Cognitive schemas as predictors of disordered eating in a multi-ethnic sample of female university students”.
