I am excited about the conference theme for 2011. In my 23 years in this field, I have seen many things work for people. I have seen one protocol work for some and other things work for others. Current research has now validated as effective many of the treatment protocols that clinicians have utilized over the years. However, there are still those protocols that promote higher levels of functioning and recovery for 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. Read the call for proposals by going to www.tinyurl.com/iaedp2011.
