SSCP Award

Are you a member of the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology (SSCP)? If so, you are eligible to apply for the annual SSCP student poster session at the APS Annual Convention. Cash awards of $200 and $100 are given for “best” and “distinguished contribution” posters.

To be eligible to submit a poster for the SSCP award, the first author of the poster must be a student and must be a member of SSCP at the time of submission. Submissions to the SSCP student poster session must be completed by January 31. You will also be contacted by email in late April to submit a copy of the final version of your poster by May 12, 2020.

The SSCP poster award submission can deal with any area within scientific clinical psychology (e.g., the etiology or correlates of psychopathology, assessment/diagnosis, clinical judgment, psychiatric classification, psychotherapy process or outcome, prevention, psychopharmacology). The research and analyses presented in the poster submission must be completed (i.e., submissions containing such language as “Data will be collected….” will not be considered). Please be sure to provide enough relevant detail in the summary so that reviewers can adequately judge the originality of the study, the soundness of the theoretical rationale and design, the quality of the analyses, the appropriateness of the conclusions, and so on.

Please visit the SSCP website for more information.
