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.
