Special consideration will be extended to submissions from professionals in the first seven years post-degree and current graduate students. You may indicate your status on your proposal by noting “ECP” or “GS” on the bottom of both the cover page and the abstract page. This pool of proposals will be reviewed separately from the general pool for a number of dedicated program slots in an effort to increase the representation of early career individuals. The deadline for paper and panel submissions is September 4, 2009.
To facilitate participation and integration, accepted panel and paper proposals may also be matched with seasoned professionals who will serve as mentors, co-presenters, moderators or discussants.
Early Career Paper Prize
We are pleased to announce a new prize for best conference paper by an early career professional. The winner will receive a guarantee of publication in the official journal of APA Division 39, “Psychoanalytic Psychology.” Mentorship in editing the paper for publication will be provided. All accepted abstracts by Early Career Professionals will be invited to submit completed papers to the Early Career Committee for consideration. Details and deadlines to be announced.
We strongly encourage active participation by our graduate students and early career members and hope that the 2010 Chicago conference will be “wild” with energy!
