  • peer review and critique with leading experts to stimulate constructive learning
  • the ability to present, debate and refine your research through one on one discussions with attendees and leaders in the field
  • a chance to discuss early stages of a bigger project at a time when input can be most beneficial
  • the chance to enhance your public speaking skills during a Poster Blitz Session
  • the chance to enhance your communication skills at the Poster Session itself
  • public recognition of your research and work
  • a face-to-face opportunity to network and grow relationships with fellow students, researchers, clinicians and leaders in the hypnosis field

Scheduled Poster Activities

The SCEH Poster Session takes place prior to the SCEH Annual Conference Banquet on Saturday evening and provides an excellent showcase of the latest research.  Poster authors are asked to stand by their displayed poster and be prepared to answer questions about its content during the Poster Session.  Prior to that, a brief Poster Blitz Session during the Scientific Program provides each poster author with 2- 3 minutes to describe their topic.

Posters are still being accepted for the Society's 68th Annual Scientific Program in October in Chicago. SCEH invites researchers and clinicians to submit posters addressing empirical issues in the science of hypnosis and related topics, including suggestibility, placebo effects, and contemplative practice. The SCEH meeting provides a unique venue for presenting and integrating rigorous data-based findings in an atmosphere conducive to constructive criticism and debate.
 
Poster presentations allow authors to concisely present a case report or data that can be easily grasped in this format. Poster presentations often permit more discussion between presenters and attendees and may be especially advantageous for students, clinicians, and new investigators. Authors will be expected to stand by their poster and be prepared to answer questions about its content during the poster session. The submission should clearly specify that the submission is for a poster presentation.

It affords presenter the opportunity to gain valuable feedback from leading clinicians and researchers in the hypnosis field, both in group and one on one discussions.
