SIG Posters

The Schizophrenia SIG participates in ABCT's SIG Exposition (poster session) and will do so again in 2018.  It will be held on Friday, November 16th, at 6:30 pm in Ballroom 1, 2, & 3.  Poster submissions are not restricted to students, but students in the SIG poster sessions will be eligible for consideration for the SIG's Outstanding Student Research Award, which includes a $100 cash prize.  A panel of judges will determine the winner of the award, announce the winner, and award the prize all at the SIG poster session.  Student entrants must be enrolled in a university training program in the 2018-2019 school year to be eligible.  Please join us at the SIG poster session to support student research, network, and enjoy a cocktail, if you choose!

Recap of ABCT 2017 SIG Poster Session:

We had twelve excellent posters at this year's SIG poster exposition discussing a variety of topics relevant to assessment and treatment of schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses.  Congratulations to Elaina Montague, M.A., and Jesse Hochheiser, both graduate students at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, who won this year’s student poster award!  The poster is available here.  

Full citation: Montague, E., Hochheiser, J., & Spaulding, W.D. (November, 2017) From dysregulated emotions to social dysfunction: Mediating effects of emotion regulation problems on social functioning in schizotypy. Poster presented at the 51st Annual Convention for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies Meeting in San Diego.

SIG Poster Session, November 2012.  SIG Members Andrea Avila and Charlie Davidson with submitted posters.  


Please note that the ABCT rules for SIG posters are different from the rules for regular poster sessions.  Posters must be no larger than 18 inches wide by 19 inches tall and work best when mounted on foam core or other lightweight, inflexible backing.  ABCT will provide small easels with self-adhesive strips, although you may also bring your own easel if you wish.  Presenters may use handouts to communicate essential information or share contact information for follow-up correspondence.  There will not be electrical outlets available.  

Posters should all be formatted using the following template: The Title of a Poster Should Be in Upper and Lower Case, using lower case only for conjunctions, prepositions, and articles. Please include authors in their proper order, followed by their affiliation [please, no departments or centers or other secondary listings]. When multiple authors are at the same institution, you may group them under a single affiliation.
