Format for Abstract Submissions: 

Overall poster abstract (maximum of 250 words)

The abstract should be a concise description of results, findings and conclusions of a psychotherapy research study, or an illustrative clinical case or case series.

Policies and Guidelines for Poster Presentations

Ideally, your poster should be self-explanatory so that you are free to supplement and discuss particular points when asked. The poster session provides an opportunity for informal discussion, but this becomes more difficult if you are obliged to explain the basics of your poster to each viewer.

There may only be one presenter for each poster and the presenter must be an investigator on the research study and included among the authors listed on the abstract submission.

Posters must report only findings of the research. No advertising or product identification by brand name is allowed. Generic names of drugs should be used throughout the poster.

Handouts must be limited to a one-page photocopy of your poster. 

The Poster Layout

  • The poster board surface area is 122 cm x 244 cm and will contain the poster number assigned to your paper, so you will know which board to use.
  • A copy of your abstract should be posted as part of the poster.  
  • Bear in mind that your illustrations will be viewed from distances of one meter or more. All lettering should be visible to most viewers without discomfort.
  • It helps the viewer if you can indicate (by numbers, letters, or arrows) a preferred sequence that might be followed in studying your material.
  • Try to keep everything simple, avoid overly ornate presentations. Block coloring can be useful to add emphasis and clarity. Preferably, captions should be brief and labels few but clear.
  • The poster area will not have projection equipment or electrical outlets.

Informed Consent

Informed Consent must be obtained for all clinical case presentations. A note should be included in the poster stating that the patient(s) in the case report(s) gave informed consent for presentation. Additionally, you may disguise case material to protect confidentiality, but not as a substitution for informed consent.
