Call for Poster Presentation Proposals – 2024 ACPE Annual Conference

Written by Csaba Szilagyi

The deadline to submit proposals is April 22, 2024 

Poster presentations will highlight and integrate research, evidence-based practices, and innovations to inform CPE, spiritually integrated psychotherapy, and spiritual care.

Posters share knowledge by providing a visual summary of a project or initiative. They present information, graphics, charts, etc. in accessible and visually interesting ways and generate curiosity and interaction with viewers.

This is an excellent opportunity to share your expertise, engage in conversation with colleagues, stimulate innovation, receive feedback, and contribute to advancing the craft of spiritual care & education.

Poster topics may include but are not limited to:

  • research projects,
  • quality improvement (QI) projects,
  • innovative educational or clinical initiatives,
  • doctoral projects,
  • in-progress reports of research or other projects, or
  • literature reviews.

We consider proposals involving any aspect of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE), Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy (SIP), or spiritual care. All posters should report results, outcomes, or takeaways that were evaluated or measured in some form (e.g., using qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods). We also highly recommend spotlighting how your project and findings inform our professional practices.
