CALL FOR POSTERS
FOR COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY IN SCHOOLS SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP
OF THE ASSOCIATION OF BEHAVIORAL AND COGNITIVE THERAPIES (ABCT)
The Cognitive Behavior Therapy in School Settings Special Interest Group through ABCT is accepting proposals for the Special Interest Group (SIG) Poster Exposition at the 2006 Annual Convention in Chicago, Illinois. The use of posters provides an informal and interactive opportunity to share research, data, and innovative practice. We are looking for posters that present information relative to school-based services including, psychological counseling, cognitive and behavioral interventions, assessment of mental health issues, school-based mental health services, and specific intervention and prevention programs. We are accepting posters of completed research as well as those projects that are in progress.
Proposals should include the following information:
- A cover sheet listing the title of the poster, all authors and their affiliations, and contact information (e.g., address, telephone, and email) of the primary presenter.
- An Abstract containing 300 words or less describing an introduction to the research questions, the purpose of the research, the methods used, and the outcome.
- Biographical information of 50 words or less for each presenter.
Exposition posters must be mounted on foam core or poster board that is no larger than 28” wide X 22” high. This will enable the use of easel-like cardboard stands that permit the posters to be easily viewed by exposition attendees. Presenters must bring their posters pre-mounted. Posters may not be hung from hotel walls. If necessary, presenters may use handouts to supplement information that will not fit on their posters.
Those interested should send questions and proposals (including the information above) to Dr. Jessica L. Stewart, ABCT School Poster Session, 50 N. Second Street, New Bedford, MA 02740. Telephone: (508) 742-7492. Preferably, you may also submit proposal electronically by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. All proposal materials must be received by August 25, 2006.
