Virtual Conferences

Call for Proposals for the 2024 Virtual Conference is Open Now Through May 31, 2024!

We are thrilled to announce the 2024 ISSTD Virtual Conference with the theme, “Attachment and the Therapeutic Relationship,” which will take place November 9-10, 2024! The Call for Proposals for the 2024 Virtual Conference is now open and will close May 31, 2024, at 11:59pm US Eastern Time.

ISSTD has been welcoming professionals working with complex trauma and dissociation for four decades. Presenting at the Virtual Conference creates an opportunity to share your research and experiences with, as well as connect with, fellow clinicians and researchers in the field from all over the world!

We invite creative, innovative, and interesting 90 minute presentations that represent all aspects of understanding, researching, and treating complex trauma and dissociation. We especially invite those that directly address the conference theme, “Attachment and the Therapeutic Relationship.” We encourage solid scientific and clinically grounded presentations.

Please note, presenters for this conference must agree to have their presentation live-streamed and recorded as well as follow all continuing education guidelines. Proposal decisions will be made by the end of June, and all submitters will be notified by email once decisions are made. The conference schedule and registration will become available mid-July.

If you have any questions about the call for proposals process or general conference questions, visit the conference website or please email for additional assistance.

Review the guidelines and submit your proposal now. Please note, the deadline for proposal submission will NOT be extended past May 31, 2024. 

We look forward to seeing you online in November!
