Conference Format and Procedures

Conference activities will be scheduled in the Nieuw Statendam’s conference rooms on two of the three full days that it is under sail. Conference programming will feature keynote presentations as well as posters and presentations by attendees. It also will feature roundtable discussions to the exchanges of ideas among participants.

There will be parallel tracks in English and in Spanish. As well, some programs will that address both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking of attendees together.

Registrants are, of course, free to participate in this conference without presenting. But the conference will be enriched by presentations from attendees. Note that a subset of papers accepted for presentation at this conference will be invited to be included in a special issue of the Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy that will focus on supervision.
