Save The Date: JCCAP Future Directions Forum (June 15-16, 2018; Washington, DC)

As a leading journal in child and adolescent mental health, the Journal of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (JCCAP) is in a unique position to build bridges among the field’s disciplines—Psychology, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Public Health, Public Policy, Social Work, Education, Nursing, and Neuroscience, among others.

Together, we can leverage expertise from all of these disciplines to improve the mental health of children and adolescents worldwide. 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 child and adolescent mental health, in that they focus on topics of relevance to the diverse disciplines that comprise the field.

We launched the JCCAP Future Directions Forum in an effort to further strengthen these connections. Our annual Forum showcases interdisciplinary work in child and adolescent mental health, provides professional development training to early career scientists in the field, and raises public awareness of the “best and brightest” of these scientists-in-training. Here is why you should “save the date” and attend the Forum:

  • The 2018 JCCAP Future Directions Forum will be in Washington, DC, on June 15-16, 2018! We will hold the Forum on the top floor of the American Psychological Association’s home office. This location provides us with state-of-the-art facilities and opportunities to do some amazing things, like webcast Forum activities so that people from all over the world can view the Forum!
  • To be productive members of our research community, early career scientists need to go beyond what they learn in the classroom, to develop the skills to succeed – writing great journal articles, effectively communicating ideas during a job interview, or writing successful grant proposals. This forum provides the opportunity to do just that.
  • The JCCAP Future Directions Forum seeks to provide early career scientists with tools to increase their competitiveness in the highly competitive science job market. The Forum includes a full day of workshops devoted to such topics as academic writing, grant application strategies, federal agency funding priorities, increasing academic productivity, and the peer review process. Attendees will have the option of earning Continuing Education credits for attending the forum as well.
  • As part of the two-day Forum, leading figures in child and adolescent mental health speak about their work and inspire early career scientists with innovative ideas. A description of the JCCAP Future Directions Forum and list of speakers can be found online here.
  • The Forum includes a premier social event dedicated to early career scientists presenting their own research on child and adolescent mental health. In 2017, 60 poster presentations featured work by up-and-coming researchers from across the U.S.! An innovative element of our poster session socials is that we render these poster presentations in a 100 percent digital environment, saving presenters both time and money. Further, this event provides early career scientists with opportunities for “one-on-one” time with the scientists who we invited to speak during the Forum. For abstracts of research that attendees previously presented at the Forum, please see the 2017 Forum program book.
  • From among presenters at the Forum, we will identify recipients of the Future Directions Launch Award. This award recognizes promising early career researchers doing work in areas highlighted at the Forum. To learn more about the winners of the 2017 Future Directions Launch Award, please visit the Forum’s main website

We will have more news soon! Stay tuned to our homepage.
