2021 Annual Conference

ISSTD 2021 Annual Conference Call for Proposals

Hi Everyone.  The ISSTD 2021 Annual Conference call for proposals about to begin.  The World Congress on Intergenerational Trauma will be held in Louisville, Kentucky, from April 8 -12, 2021. Call for Proposals opens on July 31, 2020 and closes on September 15, 2020.  We are asking that all proposals be submitted on time as the deadline cannot be extended. 

We are hoping to offer a number of presentations that specifically address the following:

  • Conference theme of intergenerational trauma
  • Dissociative processes
  • Diverse cultural perspectives
  • Are appropriate for each one of the three content levels (beginning/introductory, intermediate and advanced)

However, we will not be limiting proposals to these topics.

We will offer 3-hour and 90-minute workshops, symposiums, forums, panels, and paper sessions. Submissions for posters will also be accepted.

There will be fewer breakout sessions this year, and so the competition will be tighter.  We encourage you to be creative but grounded in sound science, as all proposals will require at least five peer reviewed references that are no more than ten years old (at least two of these citations must be from the last five years).  More information and guidelines for submissions are available on the Submission Guidelines page of the Annual Conference Website.

We look forward to your submissions.
