AFTA 2019 Brief Presentation Proposal Form due by 11/16/2018
RUPTURE AND REPAIR: REMAKING RELATIONSHIPS IN FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES
41st AFTA Annual Meeting & Open Conference
June 20-22, 2019
Oakland, CA
The goals of this year’s conference are twofold: (1) to examine how we use our knowledge to address ruptures and repairs in couples, families, communities and in our relationship with the environment and non-human beings; and, (2) to devise strategies for creating sustainable change and repair.

We invite submissions that address these objectives and situate the work in social, historical and political contexts. Submissions may consider how we apply the field’s knowledge outside of clinical practice to broader settings such as policy, child welfare, public health, and education.

1. The Brief Presentations typically occur in a session that is a total of 90 minutes long. These include two to three presentations within each 90-minute session. Typically each presenter presents for 15-20 minutes and ends with Q&A time.
2. In an effort to include many AFTA members and non-members to share their current thinking and work, we want to make room for as many as possible.
3. Innovative uses of classical or integrative family therapy theories or new theoretical frameworks in relation to clinical work, research, family therapy training, or social policy with an intersectional lens are welcome.

4. Contextualize your work with the theme of the conference of Rupture and Repair, and consider issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, and other dimensions of identity, diversity, and multiculturalism, and identify the communities, setting, and limitations as you present your work. We encourage a diversity of topics, but while achieving that diversity, it is important that the population and setting of the work be clear to your audience.

AMEDCO Disclosure
Everyone involved in the Annual Conference must complete the following disclosure statements in order to participate. It will only take a couple minutes to finish. Please be sure to answer all questions/statements.
Definition of Financial Relationship
Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria for promotional speakers’ bureau, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner. Contracted research includes research funding where the institution gets the grant and manages the fund's and the person is the principal or named investigator on the grant. There is no minimum dollar amount for relationships.
Definition of Commercial Interest
A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. Providers of clinical service directly to patients are not commercial interests (unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, a commercial interest).
In the past 12 months, have you or your spouse had a financial relationship with any commercial interest? *
Statement 1: I will not accept payments or reimbursements from a commercial interest (any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients) for my role in the planning and delivery of this CME activity. If I am approached by a commercial interest in this regard, I will immediately notify American Family Therapy Academy. *
Statement 2: Continuing medical education consists of educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. The content of CME is that body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet these standards, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet these standards. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet these standards. *
Statement 3: Presentations that promote recommendations, treatment, or manners of practicing medicine that are not within the definition of CME, or known to have risks or dangers that outweigh the benefits or known to be ineffective in the treatment of patients are prohibited. Presentations devoted to advocacy of unscientific modalities of diagnosis or therapy are prohibited. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet these standards, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet these standards. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet these standards. *
Statement 4: All recommendations involving clinical medicine in a CME activity must be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the care of patients. All scientific research referred to, reported or used in CME in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet these standards, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet these standards. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet these standards. *
Statement 5: Presentations must give a balanced view of therapeutic options. Use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality. If the CME educational material or content includes trade names, where available trade names from several companies should be used, not just trade names from a single company. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet this standard. *
Statement 6: Educational materials that are a part of this activity, such as slides, abstracts, and handouts, cannot contain any advertising, trade names, or product-group messages, or commercial interest logos. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet this standard. *
Statement 7: The content or format of a CME activity or its related materials must promote improvements or quality in healthcare and not a specific proprietary business interest of a commercial interest. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet this standard. *
Statement 8: The content of the CME activity must not be influenced by any commercial interest. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I'm a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. *
Statement 9: If I participate in a non-faculty role, such as planner or reviewer, I will recuse myself from planning/reviewing content related to my financial relationship(s). *
Statement 10: If I am an abstract reviewer, I will not score any abstracts of which I am an author or which I know to be from my institution. If I or my spouse/domestic partner has a financial relationship with a company engaged in producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients and whose products or services are the subject of an abstract I am reviewing, I will refrain from scoring that abstract. Additionally, I will base my recommendations for content selection solely on the mean score when I or my spouse/domestic partner have a financial relationship with a company engaged in producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients and whose products or services are the subject of an abstract I am selecting. *
