ISPS-US 18th Annual Meeting:
Psychosis, Citizenship, and Belonging:
Forging Pathways toward Inclusion and Healing
November 1-3, 2019
New Haven, Connecticut
Proposals must be submitted online by May 7, 2019. Presenters may not be added to panels after May 7.
We welcome interactive presentations that will expand upon the definition of what is consensual by broadening our understanding and acceptance of the realities of diverse peoples, cultures, and faith traditions, including voice hearers, visionaries, shamans, and psychics. Our goal is to present new and more nuanced understandings of the relationships between alienation and isolation and psychosis, and to highlight the degree to which a sense of safety and belonging—to family, to community, and to the world—can foster resilience and promote recovery in vulnerable individuals.
Incomplete or late proposals will not be accepted. Proposals will not be accepted by mail or email. Questions about the submission process should be emailed to Karen Stern at email@example.com. Questions regarding content of proposals should be sent to Meeting Chair, Claire Bien, M.Ed. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALL PRESENTERS MUST REGISTER AND PAY to attend the meeting. ACCEPTED PRESENTERS MUST SUBMIT ADDITIONAL PAPERWORK in a timely manner. INDIVIDUAL PRESENTERS/CONTACT PEOPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE for keeping ISPS-US informed of any changes in contact information or if any presenters are unable to attend.
Every presenter must complete the online conflict of interest disclosure.
