Call For Graduate Student Poster Session Submissions!

Attention Counseling Students!

LCCNC cares about you and your professional development. Please consider submitting a poster about a counseling topic related to our theme, The Balanced Life Mind-Body Cohesion and any of the conference tracks outlined in our call for proposals.  

Poster sessions are an integral part of our conference and provide our counseling students an opportunity to practice presenting clinical topics of interest in an academic, but casual setting. Accepted students will share their poster with conference attendees during one of the networking breaks at the conference.  Conference attendees will walk around the poster session and visit student’s posters and have the opportunity to ask questions.  Participating in a poster session is a wonderful academic and professional experience for our counseling students.
