What is a poster session?     

An interactive summary your research that is displayed all day at our conference. A posters organization, evidence base, and aesthetic help draw conference attendees to your work and possibly expand your professional network. It is an opportunity to engage in thought provoking conversations that may contribute to the development of your study and bring forward new ideas about clinical applications of your research.

Consider making a poster on your dissertation research, pilot studies, preliminary data., single case studies, a conceptual model, or innovative interventions in the treatment of addictions.

What does a poster look like?

Key information (brief paragraphs, bulleted outlines, diagrams, tables, graphs) organized on a board in large print.  Posters can either be printed on a single, large sheet of paper, or separate sheets of paper.  Kinko’s, or other similar businesses, can usually print posters (from a PowerPoint file) for a reasonable cost. Consider reviewing the APA article The Perfect Poster to help you better understand what goes into making a poster.

What does the presenter do at a conference?

Stand by their posters between conference sessions to share about their research and build relationships with addictive disorder specialists. Providing handout summaries to interested conference attendees can help them remember your work and bridge a new professional relationship.
