Mobile Version 2018 CFP


DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: JANUARY 8, 2018 (11:59 PM CENTRAL STANDARD TIME)


It's that time again! Don't miss the chance to present at the next EMDRIA Conference!

 

You are invited to apply to present at the 2018 EMDR International Association Conference. Material should be relevant to the EMDR field and be an original contribution. Members and non-members of EMDRIA are invited to submit. Share your best practices and new techniques with other therapists in the industry, helping them to understand the new research and clinical practices in EMDR and how to help treat all types of trauma. Please be sure to READ EVERYTHING, as types of presentations have changed, as well as the instructions AND requirements. We hope you find the process much easier to navigate.

  

NOTICE:

NEW this year, all accepted presentations for the 2018 EMDRIA Conference will be audio recorded. Additionally, all selected presentations are subject to being live streamed and video recorded, if selected as 2018 EMDRIA Conference Online content. All selected presenters must prepare presentation content to be suitable for live streaming and recording.

  • All presentation content is subject to audio/video recording.
  • It is the presenter’s responsibility to ensure all content is acceptable for audio/ video recording, including securing all client confidentiality agreements.
  • IMPORTANT: By submitting a proposal, the presenter is consenting to the content of the presentation to be live streamed or recorded.

Descriptions of the four different presentation types are listed below.

You’ll need to choose the ONE that best fits your presentation.

  • Integrative:

    This presentation “integrates” elements of other psychotherapies or interventions (e.g. Ego State Therapy, Internal Family Systems) with standard EMDR therapy. The presentation demonstrates how the additional therapy or intervention potentially enhances or improves the application of EMDR, refers to how it fits within the AIP Model, and how the two interventions may be blended with the existing phases of EMDR therapy. The rationale for the expectation of improved outcomes based on the needs of a specific population should be described. Integrative programs may be 90 minutes or 3 hours in length.
  • Innovative:

    This presentation includes modifications to the standard EMDRIA Definition of EMDR and shows promise for improving outcomes, understanding of the model, or of the underlying mechanism. For the purposes of the EMDRIA Conference, an Innovative presentation is considered an alternative procedure, protocol or explanation that deviates from the standard EMDR method and model. The innovation seeks to expand, strengthen, and/or explain the already successful method and/or model. Support must be provided for the suggested changes. Innovative programs will be organized into a 90-minute format to include presentation of the material and a discussion led by an expert on the subject matter. Approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes will be allocated for the presenter and 20 minutes for the discussant.
  • Research Paper (oral):

    The research paper session will be held in symposium format with 15 to 30 minutes per presentation. (Maximum amount of time allowed is 30 minutes.)

Before starting the online process, please review the checklist of items you’ll need to have ready to upload into the system, depending on which type of presentation you choose (Standard, Integrative, Innovative, or Research Paper).
