Call for Abstracts - JCCAP Future Directions Forum, University of Maryland, June 1-2, 2017 (posted 9/17/16, deadline 1/31/17)

The field of child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) increasingly leverages knowledge from multiple disciplines to understand, assess, prevent, and treat the mental health concerns of children and adolescents. As a field, CAMH thrives when its constituent disciplines—Psychology, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Public Health, Public Policy, Social Work, Education, Nursing, and Neuroscience, among others—build bridges to work with one another in an effort to improve the mental health of children and adolescents worldwide. However, these bridges do not build themselves. As a leading journal in CAMH, the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (JCCAP) is in a unique position to build bridges among CAMH disciplines. In fact, JCCAP publishes content with a large, interdisciplinary outreach. In particular, regularly invited articles (i.e., Future Directions) seek to unite affiliated disciplines in CAMH, in that they focus on topics of relevance to the diverse disciplines that comprise CAMH. In an effort to further strengthen these connections, 2017 marks the launch of the JCCAP Future Directions Forum. This annual forum showcases interdisciplinary work in CAMH, provides professional development training to early career scientists in CAMH, and raises public awareness of the “best and brightest” of these scientists-in-training.
 
The JCCAP Future Directions Forum accepts abstracts for poster presentations. We encourage abstracts from all areas of CAMH. Early career scientists who submit to the forum may be eligible to receive the Future Directions Launch Award. This award recognizes the best and brightest scientists-in-training doing work in any one of the four areas emphasized in 2017: (1) suicide and self-injury; (2) conduct problems; (3) bipolar spectrum disorders; and (4) evidence-based assessment. All poster presentations will be in digital format, and so presenters at our forum will save both time and money because they will not have to print out their poster to present at the forum!
