- Workshops are 90-minute, interactive sessions. Interactivity and skills-based approaches are the main components of mini workshops than compare to a symposium.
- It is mandatory to have a minimum of 1 (one) to a maximum of four (4) speakers and 1 Chair/Moderator who can also double as speaker.
- The Chair/Moderator will serve as the primary contact person for the submission. It is the responsibility of the Chair to notify their co-presenters about the outcome of the review process.
- Submissions should include: (1) an overall abstract describing the entire workshop, including plans for interactive activities; and (2) an outline of the proposed schedule for the workshop, including order of speaker(s) and interactive activities.
- Workshops may, alternatively, be structured as a debate. If structured as a debate, time should be allotted for audience discussion.
- Each Workshop should be structured to incorporate ample audience member discussion/participation (25% of total session time). Workshops should focus on a clinical topic relevant to IPT practitioners that will enhance skills or knowledge. Typically workshops will be structured to include both didactic content and interactive learning opportunities such as role plays or skill rehearsal.
- Once a Workshop is accepted, speaker changes are NOT allowed unless approved by the Program Committee Chair.
- Regrettably, ISIPT cannot provide financial assistance or reduced registration fees for workshop speakers.
