D17 Call for Student Poster Session Proposals for APA13

Call For Proposals

Society of Counseling Psychology (APA Division 17) Student Poster Session

American Psychological Association Convention

Honolulu, Hawaii July 31st– August 4th

Submission Deadline for Proposals: March 18, 2013, 11:59PM PST


Proposals are now being accepted for a Student Poster Session co-sponsored by the Council of Counseling Psychology Training Programs (CCPTP), Division 17 Sections, and the Division 17 Student Affiliates of Seventeen (SAS). Poster proposals may be empirical studies or theoretical considerations relevant to the specific Division 17 Section to which they are submitted. The first author on the proposal must be a student (or have completed the project while a student or intern) and must either be an affiliate of Division 17 or sponsored by a Division 17 member.


Poster proposals should include a cover sheet and a 500- to 1000-word summary of the study in APA style. The abstract should include some description of the nature of the presentation (empirical, theoretical, technique) and primary findings. Summaries of empirical studies should include a brief literature review, statement of the problem (hypotheses or research questions), participants, procedures, results, and conclusions. Summaries of other presentations should include enough detail for reviewers to judge the overall format and contribution of the scholarship. The proposals will be subjected to masked review. Please do not include identifying information in the proposal (only on the cover sheet; see below).


To submit your proposal for the Student Poster Session, attach your proposal and completed cover sheet and email to BOTH studentposterdiv17@gmail.com  and the contact person of the section you wish to submit to (see contact list below). Identify in the subject line of the email: student poster proposal – “Name of Section” (e.g., student poster proposal – Section on Ethnic and Racial Diversity).  If you do not send your proposal to a specific section, your proposal will not be reviewed for this poster session.  Please send your proposal to only one section.  For a description of each of the sections please go to the section website (https://www.div17.org/sections.html).


Notifications of proposal status and presentation instructions

will be sent via email after May 10, 2013.


Given that this poster session is internally sponsored by Division 17, and not part of the official APA convention program, presenters will not be eligible for APA travel awards or waived registration fees for the APA Convention.
