Speaker Commitment for the EMDRIA Virtual Conference

All conference presentations will be pre-recorded by the presenter(s) and be submitted to EMDRIA by a deadline to be established once selections are made. Presenters will be required to participate online via chat during the showing of their presentation, and then participate in live video for the Q&A portion at the end of their session. The showing of the 90 Minute or 3 Hour presentation will be scheduled at a designated day/time on any one of the following days:

  • Saturday/Sunday - November 6/7 (between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm CT)
  • Tuesday/Thursday - November 9/11 (between the hours of 9 am and 12 pm CT)
  • Saturday/Sunday - November 13/14 (between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm CT)
  • Tuesday/Thursday - November 16/18 (between the hours of 9 am and 12 pm CT)
  • Saturday/Sunday - November 20/21 (between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm CT)

Descriptions of the four presentation types are listed below. Choose the ONE that best fits your presentation.

STANDARD: This presentation is consistent with the EMDRIA Definition of EMDR, including the AIP model on which EMDR is based. Click here to review the EMDRIA Definition of EMDR. Standard programs maybe 90 minutes or 3 hours in length.

RESEARCH PAPER (oral): The research paper session will be held in symposium format with 10 to 30 minutes per presentation within a 90 Minute workshop session. (Maximum amount of time allowed per Research Paper is 30 minutes.)

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 maybe 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 other than the EMDR standard protocol, method, and model. The innovation seeks to expand, strengthen, and/or explain the already successful EMDR standard protocol, the underlying mechanism of action, the AIP model, and/or the 8 phases and 3 prongs of the protocol methodology. Click here to review the Innovative Guidelines for first-time and/or subsequent Innovative submissions.
