2023 Conference Information

2023 Call for Proposals

2023 Crisis Intervention Conference Call for Presenter Proposals

The 2023 Crisis Intervention Conference is scheduled for Thursday-Friday, September 21-22, 2023. It is anticipated that this event will take place in-person at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells. Some sessions may be available virtually.

The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) and the conference planning committee are accepting proposals for 90-minute workshops.

Proposals that demonstrate evidence-based practices, promote strength-based approaches, include the voice of lived experience, address diverse populations, enhance skills, support Crisis Intervention efforts, and energize participants are encouraged. Proposal Deadline is January 12, 2023. Please submit one form per proposal.

UW-Stevens Point Continuing Education and Outreach staff and the conference planning committee review all proposals. Selection criteria includes the following:
• Demand for the topic.
• Presenter(s) experience and qualifications.
• Demonstration of diverse perspective or application.
• Relevancy (new or advanced level information) and best practices.
• Alignment with conference objectives.
• History of the topic at the conference, including frequency of similar offerings.
• Previous conference evaluation feedback, if applicable.
• Preference may be given to proposals on topics that have not been presented at recent conferences.
• Alignment with national best practice standards described inCrisis Nowand theNational Guidelines for Crisis Care – A Best Practice Toolkit.

The Crisis Intervention Conference is committed to equity and inclusion. UWSP and the conference planning committee recognize that people come from different contexts and circumstances. This means that on a structural level, some individuals have fewer barriers preventing them from speaking at events like conferences and some individuals have significantly more. These systemic barriers are often a function of racial background, class, gender, and ability. The barriers themselves could be financial, physical, geographical, or social. Each presenter is initially offered the same compensation of complimentary conference registration, a small honorarium, and one night of lodging. Individual requests for additional compensation to alleviate financial barriers are welcome. Indicate your compensation need later in this proposal.

The Call for Proposals Form asks for the following information:
• Presenter and Co-Presenter contact information, professional credentials/title, short biography.
• 2-3 References who have seen you present or who could speak to the content you would be presenting.
• Session Title, Description, 3 Learning Objectives (“Participants will…”).
• Additional compensation request?
• Answer the question: “How do your personal and professional experiences and formal education connect to this proposal and the conference?” (max. 500 characters)
• OPTIONAL demographic questions.
