National Conference in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology
Thursday–Saturday • October 18–20, 2012
Marriott Springhill Suites and the Kansas Union, Lawrence, Kan.

You are invited to submit abstracts for the poster sessions at the National Conference in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, Lawrence, Kan., October 18–20, 2012.

This conference is a forum for: 1) research presentations that help translate science into clinical practice, and 2) presentations on service delivery that identify empirical bases and research needs. The field of clinical child and adolescent psychology is broadly defined, covering a range of topics in child, adolescent and family mental health.

The conference will include keynote addresses, topical reviews, and poster presentations on topics in child and family mental health. We have identified certain topics for emphasis during the plenary sessions, but for poster presentations, we will consider any topic within the realm of clinical child, pediatric, school and family psychology; mental health services; and research on children, adolescents and families. Plenary presentations will be delivered by invited speakers on topics of particular significance to practice and science.

Abstract submissions for poster sessions will be considered on any topic relevant to clinical child and pediatric psychology or child and family mental health.
