Accepting Submissions for the Following Formats:

The ISST Executive Board is announcing the Call for Scientific and Clinical Presentations for INSPIRE 2020 in Copenhagen. We are inviting researchers and practitioners, both experienced and newer to the field, who are interested in strengthening the scientific and practical foundations of Schema Therapy. If you are a practicing Schema Therapist, in training, or if you are studying or doing research in Schema Therapy and want to introduce your ideas and/or research results, we invite you to submit a proposal to our Scientific and Clinical Program. Submissions are encouraged from all levels of applicants, whether you have many years of expertise or are a student in the field.
We invite proposals for presentations in the following formats:
Please select the format for your proposal, based on the descriptions below. The presenter and/or chair of each format must complete each required field on the application.
The application requires the following information for each presenter:
Symposia (90 minutes)
The lead presenter submits a title and general overview of the session (less than 300 words), and includes additional individual presenters with their structured abstracts that would take place in the proposed symposium (less than 300 words).
Symposia are 90 minutes long and consist of four to five presentations focused on empirical research or conceptual, philosophical, historical, or methodological issues. Following the presentations, a discussant (who may or may not be one of the presenters) highlights and integrates the contributions of the speakers and moderates questions from the audience. The Chair is invited to use the symposium format as an opportunity to integrate related work by: 1) bringing speakers of different affiliations together rather than showcasing the work of a single group and 2) incorporating different types of discussions (e.g., historical, conceptual and research-based) on the same topic. Priority is given to submissions that are relevant to the conference theme, along with topics that are research and data driven. Please highlight the relevancy of your proposal, with research citations when appropriate.
The Chair accepts responsibility to ensure that all speakers provide individual abstracts of their presentations for the submission. The Chair must also ensure that speakers register with the congress and communicate with the scientific committee as well as with each other as required.
Round Table Discussion (90 minutes)
Three to five speakers discuss one area of speciality or expertise related to Schema Therapy. The discussion lasts for 90 minutes, with time allotted for both the discussion among panelists and audience questions. The Round Table Discussion is organized by a Chair, who is responsible for moderating the discussion and submitting the proposal, along with fellow presenters' information. A general overview of the topic is provided by the Chair on the submission, less than 500 words.
Case Presentations (90 minutes)
Case presentations introduce a specific clinical issue through the description of a particular case(s). Presenters will prepare a 30 minute case presentation (maximum 2 per session), with appropriate measures to ensure patient anonymity and/or have acquired informed consent. The specific topics illustrated or discussed should be highlighted up front. Finally, between one and three commenters may be invited to reflect on the case or on the broader issues it raises. The entire session is 90 minutes long. The session may require a Chair who may or may not choose to be the presenter or a discussant. The Chair submits a summary of the session and the background (less than 100 words) of the presenters and any discussants. The Chair ensures that the presenters and discussants register and communicate with each other as required to prepare for the conference presentation.
Hot Topics (10 minutes)
Individual oral presentations concerning conceptual, historical, empirical, or methodological issues related to Schema Therapy. They may report empirical research if it is too complex for an effective presentation using a Poster format (e.g., an integrated series of experiments), but does not belong within a symposium submission. Slides are encouraged to help with your presentation.
All Hot Topic presentations must be less than 10 to 15 minutes in duration. Accepted Hot Topic presenters will occur during a 90 minute session with other presenters. The program committee may also suggest that the submission belong in a more appropriate format, such as a Poster presentation. Priority for selections is to topics that relate to the conference theme, or topics that are research and data driven. Please highlight the relevancy of the topic in the proposal. The structure of the abstract of a Hot Topic should be less than 300 words, and include the following:
Posters usually report empirical research and will be organized into one or more sessions, during which attendees will be invited to review the research presented and discuss findings with poster presenters. Clinical posters, posters presenting the preliminary results of an ongoing study or case presentations are welcome. Poster Authors are required to attend their assigned session to present their work may choose to provide handouts. Guidelines for good poster preparation can be found HERE
Schema Therapy Related Films and Video/Digital Materials
The Author submits a brief description of the video material (educational, training, promotional, biographic, client sessions, research illustrations, cases, etc.): video/digital format, purpose, timing (max. 15 minutes), structure, (300 words or less), along with a link to the material to preview.
Examples of Topics of Interest
Deadline: September 30th
NOTE: All visual materials should have appropriate measures taken to ensure patient anonymity and/or have obtained informed consent. Only complete submissions, which include presenters’ short bios (2-3 paragraphs) and pictures, will be evaluated.
