Poster Presentations
The Indiana Association for Marriage and Family Therapy is accepting proposals for poster presentations for the 2014 Annual Fall Conference. Poster Presentations are one key component of the conference emphasizing the importance of current MFT research. Poster presentations also highlight recommended best practice management strategies.

Posters are visual displays highlighting the key points of a paper or project. Sharing poster presentations allows one-on-one interaction with conference attendees and presenters. Posters of clinical work, theoretical review, research-in-progress, and/or original research outcomes are invited for consideration.

This year IAMFT will be awarding the top three presentations a monetary gift of $75 for first place, $50 for second place and $25 for third place.    Please find attached the instructions for submissions: Iamft Poster 2014 Application - Extended
