Data Blitz


Advances in Mindfulness and Acceptance Based Clinical Tools for Treating Adolescents and Young Adults

**Note:  Due to concerns related to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are offering attendees (including Data Blitz presenters) an option to attend this meeting via video-conference (zoom).  Video-conference attendees will still have the opportunity to ask questions, participate in interactive exercises, and receive continuing education credits (as long as they attend the full program online).   If you would like to join via video-conference, just choose this option in the registration, and you will be emailed a link for the video-conference registration.**  

What is a Data Blitz? A Data Blitz is a series of 5-minute talks, each covering just a bite-sized bit of research. It will offer a fast-paced overview of some of the most exciting research happening in the area of acceptance and mindfulness-based treatments for adolescents and young adults.

Selected Data Blitz presentations will take place from 3:25-4:05 in the afternoon of the conference day.  Presentations will be four minutes or less, including up to two slides and one minute allowed for one audience question.  A panel of judges will award a small cash prize and certificate for the best presentation (winners will be contacted after the conference day).
