National Conference in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology
October 18-20, 2018
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).
Individual Plenary Sessions
Autism Spectrum Disorders: Evidence-based Identification and Interventions
Peer Victimization and Aggression: Application of Mediated/Moderated Associations to Clinical Practice
Building Cultural Competence among Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychologists
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. Look for abstract submission instructions on our website within the coming weeks. Funding for the Student Poster Awards was provided 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.

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.
