Call For Proposals

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation is calling for proposals for the 2016 Brief Therapy Conference, which will be held from December 8-11, 2016 in San Diego, California. Those interested in presenting a Solicited Short Course on the topic of short-term therapy methods (or closely related area), must submit:

  1. a 200-word presentation summary,
  2. a 50 word abstract,
  3. two educational objectives,
  4. two true/false questions to be used for continuing education purposes
  5. and curriculum vitae of all presenters in your program.

Due to limited space in the program, please submit only one proposal per presenter. There will be approximately 18 total Solicited Short Courses. One and a half hours allotted for each Short Course on Thursday, December 8, 2016 from 9:45-11:15 AM, 11:30 AM-1:00 PM, and 2:15- 3:45 PM. Short Course faculty receive complimentary registration for the Conference, but pay their own expenses for food, lodging, and travel.

We no longer accept hard copy submissions. DEADLINE: Proposals must be submitted online by January 24, 2016. Acceptance or rejection will be sent by March 17, 2016.

  • If you are not selected to work these days and would still like to attend, you will be given the discounted rate to register closer to the conference when schedules are made.
  • You will be redirected to the registration page after you click submit.
