for Presentations

Call for Presentations is Open!


Submission Instructions:  Submission Deadline: Sept 25, 2022.  Submissions are accepted on-line only; submissions can be single or multi-authored papers, seminars, clinical presentations, or poster sessions; most will be one-hour sessions (a few 2-hour slots are available). Be prepared to upload an abstract, 3 learning objectives, sample handouts, and CV’s of all presenters when you go to the submission website. Submissions do not have to deal directly with the conference theme. If selected for the conference, all presenters agree to register and pay for the conference and attend.


Student Poster Competition: Submission Deadline: September 25, 2022. Student Posters will be judged at the Conference with a top prize of $100 and a year’s membership in CAPS International to the winner. Posters may be theoretical or empirical but must address some aspect of the relationships amongst behavioral sciences/practices and Christian faith. If selected all poster authors must register and pay for the conference and attend to discuss their work. The Winner will be announced during the Plenary Session on Saturday morning at the Conference.  Submissions should be entered as directed above for submissions at Note on your Submission abstract:  STUDENT POSTER COMPETITION.

**Incomplete proposals will not be considered for the program until ALL requested information is submitted. Your proposal will be acknowledged within one week after receipt.


Seminar: Thorough discussion of a topic by an individual or group of up to four persons having essentially the same perspective. Proposals must clearly define the subject to be discussed. Length of time is one or two hours. NOTE: There are very few 2-hour slots on the program.
