Proposals from graduate students, including Masters and Advanced Doctoral students, as well as recent graduates are encouraged.

In addition to this year’s conference theme, other timely topics are welcomed for consideration in the conference program.

If you would like to be considered for CE eligibility, your proposal for a Paper Presentation, Symposia, Workshop, or Roundtable will require Learning Objectives. All of these proposals must include 3-4 learning objectives per hour-long program. These may focus on research, literature, teaching, supervision or clinical practice outcomes for your audience. For instance, a learning objective may be "Participants will be able to define multiculturally competent counseling practice and apply this definition to working with undocumented populations."

For more information on how to write a learning objective, please see requirements and more information below.

  • Must clearly state what the learner will know or be capable of doing following the presentation
  • Must be observable and measurable
  • Must be of sufficient depth for the academic level of the conference

Please see the following link from the APA for a guide on how to write learning objectives: Guidance for Writing Learning Objectives


If you would like to be considered for CE eligibility, your proposal for a Paper Presentation, Symposia, Workshop, or Roundtable will require Program Assessments. All of these proposals require 3-5 program assessments. Program Assessments will evaluate whether your learning objectives have been met in your session. They should be directly based upon the learning objectives of the program.

See the APA Example below:

Participants are then welcomed to present their viewpoints with subsequent exchange among participants and the audience as well as between participants. Symposia do not focus only on one paper, but are intended to collect multiple presenters who will present in-depth knowledge or perspectives potentially based on a collection of papers on a centralized question, issue, or topic of research. No more than four presenters. 


  • Abstract: In the case of an empirical study, must include a summary of the research methodology and a brief summary of the findings
  • May be CE Eligible (requires Learning Objectives and Program Assessments)

Two or three hour programs designed to provide participants with practical experience or applications of theory and research findings and specific direct skills. These will combine theoretical and experiential approaches to support participants in gaining further skills and experience in counseling psychology. These skills will be outlined in learning objectives and evaluated in assessments. Your proposal must include duration as well as a brief description of the workshop for inclusion in the program.
