Presentation Proposal Submission

Please complete the form below to submit your Brief Therapy 2018 short course presentation proposal.
  • Please upload your full CV here.
  • Please be sure your biography states the specific field/focus your degree is in (include this for any co-presenter(s) as well).
  • Please use verbs that can be measured such as "demonstrate", "list", "define" rather than "learn" or "understand."
  • Please include 3 current (within the last 5 years) peer reviewed sources. In order to comply with ACCME and APA standards, the content of continuing education is the crucial component of programs intended to maintain, develop, and increase conceptual and applied competencies that are relevant to psychological practice, education, and science. CE programs may include content related to well-established psychological principles, or may be based on content that extends current theory, method, or practice. Program content should have peer reviewed, published support beyond those publications and other types of communications devoted primarily to the promotion of the approach.
