CAMHP Student Showcase

Call For Abstracts - CAMHP Student Showcase.jpg

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project (CAMHP) is pleased to announce its first student showcase on Thursday May 3rd, 2018 from 3:00 to 5:00pm. This celebratory showcase will mark the end of CAMHP’s inaugural year. It will provide students with the opportunity to present their own research findings pertaining to youth mental health to the CAMHP community. These talks and Q&A will be followed by an extended reception to all attendees.

Talk Format:

This year’s student showcase will be in the form of a Data Blitz Symposium: a series of select student-led talks, each lasting 5-10 minutes in length. The talk should briefly summarize the justification, methods, and key findings from a student-led research study relevant to youth mental health. The goal of the Data Blitz is to provide students with the opportunity to articulate their research findings in a quick, approachable, and engaging manner. We will provide opportunity for Q&A following each talk.

Abstract Submission Instructions:

We welcome abstract submissions from any doctoral and masters students at TC who have produced research findings pertaining to child and adolescent mental health. To submit your abstract, email CAMHP@tc.columbia.edu with the heading “CAMHP Student Showcase Abstract” and your name. Submissions should include a presentation title, and an (i) Introduction, (ii) Methods, (iii) Results, and (iv) Discussion section. These four sections in total should not exceed 400 words. Students may include tables, figures, and references, which will not count toward the word limit. Students should also list additional students and/or faculty who have helped or supervised them. Sufficient data (e.g., effect sizes, statistical significance) must be included. This is a competitive review process, and selected speakers will receive recognition from the CAMHP community. Deadline is March 1, 2018 @ 11:59pm.

Abstract Review Process:

Teachers College Smarter Parenting and Grandparenting Series

Youth Mental Health: Knowing When to Help and How

Mental health can be a tricky topic for parents. What signs do we need to look for? When do we help, and how? Dr. Cha and Dr. Huang--faculty members in TC's Counseling and Clinical Psychology Department and co-directors of the The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project (CAMHP)--will provide an overview of mental health issues for children and adolescents, and discuss practical ways for parents to effectively address mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and self-harm. In addition, Dr. Cha and Dr. Huang will discuss key research on these topics and offer parenting resources, with the ultimate goal of fostering well-being both within and beyond childhood and adolescence.
