IAFP Conference - Call for Student Poster Proposals

The International Psychology Conference: Crossroads of Couple and Family Psychology is calling for students to submit poster proposals for representation during the convention. The conference will provide a combination of practice and science on a global level in the field of family psychology. We are asking for students to submit proposals to contribute to this mission. Special consideration will be given to posters that speak to the intersection of family psychology and behavioral health and posters that deal with couples research and therapy. Poster sessions are designed to allow a researcher to discuss his or her research with interested persons during the conference.


In your proposal, please include a 250-word abstract, title, author names, and e-mail of the point-of-contact author. Please submit your proposal to Dr. John Thoburn atthoburn@spu.edu as a Microsoft Word document.

Highlights from the 2013 IAFP Conference in Japan:

2013 IAFP conference in Tokyo

Family Collaboration against Global and Local Crisis, will focus on sharing current research and findings about challenges and risks for families; economic deprivation, migration, marital instability, coping with trauma in the family context, raising resilient children in the face of contextual threat, the implications of family change for intergenerational solidarity, family values and spirituality, addiction issues in families and cross-cultural perspectives on partnership and parenting.The goal of the 2013 conference was to continue the mission of IAFP when it was founded in 1990: to enhance international exchange and collaboration between researchers and practitioners working in the field of family psychology. Increasing globalization calls for a world-wide perspective on family issues such as changing family forms, diverse living conditions of families and their impact on family functioning, child bearing and child rearing, changing expectations and demands on partnerships, family relations in old age, and current trends in family education as well as family therapy.
