CALL FOR POSTERS
TWENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION
DOUBLETREE BY HILTON HOTEL CULVER CITY
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2013
LACPA invites poster proposals from its student and early career (within seven years of receipt of doctorate) members. Proposals on any research or theoretical topic related to the field of psychology will be considered. The LACPA Foundation will generously award $200, $100, and $50 for the three best posters presented at Convention.
What is a poster?
A poster is an excellent way to summarize your research project, describe a single case study, present a conceptual model or innovative intervention in psychotherapy.
What does a poster look like?
Key information (brief paragraphs, bulleted outlines, diagrams, tables, graphs) is posted on a project display board, typically in large print to make it easier to read. Posters can be printed on a single large sheet of paper or on separate sheets of paper. They are mounted on a project display board, approximately 36” high x 48”wide. Staples, or other similar businesses, can usually print posters from a PowerPoint file for a reasonable cost.
What does the presenter do at Convention?
Presenters will stand by their posters at the specified time to answer questions and engage in a dialogue with other professionals who are interested in the content. Presenters often provide handout summaries to interested Convention attendees.
