iSEFT Toronto 2017 Conference Call for Submissions

The second conference of the International Society for Emotion-Focused Therapy (iSEFT) will be held in Toronto, Canada, June 15-18, 2017. This is a conference where anyone interested in EFT can attend to learn about recent developments in Emotion-Focused Therapy and to hear about the latest research.

Jan Stiegler, from the Norwegian Institute for Emotion-Focused Therapy, is the head of the program committee for the conference, has issued a call for submissions for presentations.  He writes: 
"We are especially interested in recent developments in EFT: theoretical developments, clinical developments, research and/or experiences with EFT applied to specific populations. Also, experiences with integrating EFT with other approaches will be welcomed.

There are three types of presentations at the conference; plenary panels, plenary talks, and parallel workshops.

Depending on the submitted abstracts, panels will be set up with a few presenters focused on a common theme, or various facets of a research project. Panels will be 90 minutes in duration with a minimum of 15 minutes for open discussion with audience members. Each panel will have a moderator. In some cases individual plenary talks might be preferred format for presenting. The length of these will normally be 45 minutes.

Workshops are intended to provide exposure or training in specific areas of EFT methods, populations or problems. Workshops could also have clinical presentation of assessment or treatment that is followed by discussion on how to apply the clinical procedures described.

Submissions should include: 
• Name of presenter(s)
• Title of talk, plenary or workshop
• Amount of time requested
• Abstract describing the subject to be presented.
