The 2021 Moral Injury Conference, hosted by the Moral Injury Support Network for Servicewomen, Inc., will take place in the afternoons of June 8-10. We are currently seeking proposals for research papers, practitioner presentations, workshops and panels in one of six focus areas: Military, First Responders, Women Veterans and Servicewomen, Healthcare Providers, Chaplains/Faith Leaders, and Equality & Social Justice.
Complete and submit the form below. The deadline for submissions is April 1st, but it is better to submit earlier since we will begin considering proposals in March. We will notify you by April 15th if your presentation has been selected.
Proposal Type Explanations
- Research paper presentations are 20-30 minutes long and provide information on methods, data, and implications of recent research projects that are in process or have been completed.
- Practitioner presentations are 20-30 minutes long in which presenters explain programs, resources, or events they are using to help moral injury survivors or offer ideas for future programs related to one or more of the focus areas.
- Workshops are up to an hour long. Workshops are similar to practitioner presentations but require attendees to participate in practical exercises and include extensive Q&A periods.
- Panels are 30-45 minutes long and include four or more panelists who respond to questions or prompts by a facilitator. The panel must provide its own facilitator.
