2020 Call For Presentations
 

 

 

 



DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 

DECEMBER 13, 2019 11:59 PM CST

Don't miss the chance to present at the next EMDRIA Conference!

You are invited to apply to present at the 2020 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 well as the instructions AND requirements.

 

Descriptions of the four 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 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.
  • 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 complete and/or upload into the system, depending on which type of presentation you choose (Standard, Integrative, Innovative, or Research Paper).
