National Conference in Clinical Child Psychology
Translating Research into Practice
This year’s conference will feature themed presentations on the Assessment and Treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders; Developing Cultural Competence in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology; and identification, treatment, and prevention of Peer Victimization. Each of these themes will be addressed from multiple perspectives, with opportunities for discussion around clinical applications of the talks.
Additional Plenary sessions will focus on evidence-based decision making in clinical settings, suicide and self-harm prevention, and expanding the reach of evidence-based therapies through digital technologies.
The Conference Co-Chairs wish to thank the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology for their generous support, which helps keep registration costs as low as possible (particularly for student/trainee attendees).

Conference within a Conference (CwC)
In partnership with the University of Kansas College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, we seek to use the Conference to more effectively recruit underrepresented minority (URM) students into graduate study in psychology. Dr. Anita Jones Thomas (Dean of the College of Applied Behavioral Sciences, University of Indianapolis) will provide a plenary address to URM students as they prepare applications and materials for graduate study in psychology and provide keys for success for trainees accepted into graduate programs. Her talk is entitled, "You are welcome here: Taking a Seat at the Grad Psych Table." Breakout sessions on issues related to aspects of graduate training (e.g., fellowship funding, specialization, publication) will be offered by current graduate students in clinical child and adolescent psychology. Eligible students should look for a special registration page on the conference website. Please contact Dr. Christopher Cushing (email@example.com) for a discount code for registration.
As always, cutting edge research from across the field of clinical child and adolescent psychology will be featured in three or four poster sessions distributed throughout the conference. We are particularly pleased to be able to offer student poster awards this year, funded by the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology Science Committee and the Clinical Child Psychology Program at the University of Kansas.
The poster abstract submission portal will be available by MARCH 1, 2018. The deadline for abstract submission is May 25, 2018.
