Poster Presentation


The Poster Session Committee invites the submission of proposals for poster presentations during the 2022 CTAMFT Annual Conference “Trauma Threads: Advancing the Treatment of Trauma Through a Systemic Lens”. The poster session will take place on Friday, September 23rd from 5pm-6pm at the Waters Edge Resort & Spa in Westbrook, CT. 

Presenters will be asked to stand by their poster during the poster session to respond to comments and questions posed by conference attendees. A poster may be about research findings, clinical interventions, or any topic of interest to marriage and family therapists. 

Posters can include text, charts, tables, or other graphic representations suitable for conveying the message. We encourage posters that are creative and that address current issues or trends in the marriage and family therapy field. Teams may submit posters if at least one member of the team will be present during the poster session at the Annual Conference on September 23rd, 2022. Posters will be chosen based on the quality and relevance of the proposed presentation. 

Poster Committee members will hold a blind review of submissions, with preference given to submissions that are consistent with the Annual Conference Theme, “Trauma Threads: Advancing the Treatment of Trauma Through a Systemic Lens”. 

Three posters will be selected as recipients of the 2022 Poster Awards. Each poster category winner will receive an Amazon gift card of $50. The Poster Award categories are: Best Research-Based Poster, Best Clinically-Based Poster, and Best Poster Related to Conference Theme. The Poster Committee and CTAMFT Board will evaluate accepted posters being considered for the Poster Awards during the Annual Conference. 

Completed applications shall consist of the “Poster Session Proposal Form”, which includes the “Poster Presenter Agreement”. Posters selected for presentation must be no longer than 36” x 48”. In addition, each presenter should bring a sign-up sheet for conference participants who may want more information about their poster.
