Workshops & Mini Workshops
Workshops cover concerns of the practitioner/ educator/researcher. Workshops are 3 hours long, are generally limited to 60 attendees, and are scheduled for Friday and Saturday. Please limit to no more than 4 presenters. Mini Workshops address direct clinical care or training at a broad introductory level. They are 90 minutes long and are scheduled throughout the convention. Please limit to no more than 4 presenters. When submitting for Workshops or Mini Workshop, please indicate whether you would like to be considered for the other format as well.

Master Clinician Seminars
Master Clinician Seminars are opportunities to hear the most skilled clinicians explain their methods and show taped demonstrations of client sessions. They are 2 hours long, are limited to 40 attendees, and are scheduled Friday through Sunday. Please limit to no more than 2 presenters.
For more information or to answer any questions before you submit your abstract, contact Sarah Kertz, Master Clinician Seminar Committee Chair: firstname.lastname@example.org
Research and Professional Development
Presentations focus on "how to" develop one's own career and/or conduct research, rather than on broad-based research issues (e.g., a methodological or design issue, grantsmanship, manuscript review) and/or professional development topics (e.g., evidence-based supervision approaches, establishing a private practice, academic productivity, publishing for the general public). Submissions will be of specific preferred length (60, 90, or 120 minutes) and format (panel discussion or more hands-on participation by the audience). Though this track is not new for 2018, this is the first time that RPD abstracts are due at the earlier deadline, along with ticketed events/mini workshops, and will also be submitted through the same portal. Please limit to no more than 4 presenters, and be sure to indicate preferred presentation length and format.
