ICA-CAM 2019 Session Line-Up
15 March 2019
In early March, ICA released the program for its annual meeting in Washington, DC. At CAM, we are very much looking forward to thoughtful and rigorous conversations across a range of topics – running from CAM classics (e.g., sexual media in the lives of adolescents; parental mediation) to topics that are beginning to make waves in the CAM space (e.g., raising civically minded youth). To help you plan your Washington days, below you can find a listing of the CAM sessions. Be sure to check the online program for the most up-to-date information and to consult the session format page as you prepare your presentation. And, of course, please do plan to attend the CAM business meeting on Saturday evening – everyone is welcome to attend!
