Call For Presentations

The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF) invites members, thought leaders, crisis intervention peers, clinicians, industry experts and any interested party to submit a proposal to be considered for a presentation at the ICISF World Congress 17

The theme of the World Congress 17 is: The Power of Purpose.

This theme exemplifies the resounding energy and efforts that each of you put forth to help people, and often to help the people who help keep us safe.

ICISF World Congress 17 is a remarkable opportunity for you to offer a compelling and timely presentation to a global audience who share your devotion to the cause of effectively addressing the ravages of untreated critical incident stress. You can help participants to bring their personal and professional development to a higher level.

We look for presentations that are original, engaging, and have focused objectives.
