2021 Annual Conference

Reminder: ISSTD 2021 Annual Conference Call for Proposals Open Now!

Call for proposals is open now for The World Congress on Intergenerational Trauma! Join ISSTD in Lousiville, KY next April for the 38th Annual Conference.

Submissions for the conference are being accepted through September 15, 2020. We highly encourage presenters to submit proposals related to the conference theme of Intergenerational Trauma.

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.

If you have any questions about the call for proposals, please email us at
