Call for Proposals
The International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals
invites you to submit a proposal for the
Symposium 2011, March 3-6, 2011 at The Point Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix, Arizona.
The conference theme is EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT and TREATMENT-BASED EVIDENCE. Symposium 2011 will focus on the realities and challenges of our work with eating disorder clients – the essence of treatment. Current research has now validated as effective many of the treatment protocols that we, as clinicians, have utilized over the years. However, there are still those protocols that promote higher levels of functioning and recovery for our clients, but have yet to be supported by scientific evidence. It is our objective to bring forward and address those themes, topics, strategies, tools, and protocols that we know are powerful, transformative, and life-altering for our clients and their families.
As a peer review committee makes the selections for Symposium 2011, they will be selecting a balance of the two categories. Another consideration is the speaker’s experience and credentials to speak on the abstract submitted. Protocols should have application in both an outpatient and an inpatient treatment setting. We are seeking abstract submittals for 3 hour intensive sessions.
We will use an online submittal process again this year. Only the submittals that are complete will be considered. The call will open June 1, 2010 and remain open until September 15, 2010. You will be required to submit the following information:
Three (3) behaviorally measurable learning objectives. Please note: measurable learning objectives must complete the statement: “Following this presentation, participants will be able to identify, utilize, explain…”
