Closing date for the submission: January, 22nd 2016
Identity – Integration – Boundaries
The conference is based on the actual political and social realities we find in our countries and we want to create a program which evidences and illustrates the theme in terms of:
- what happens across the world and in our societies, and how is it analysed and researched?
- what does TA offer for refugees, immigrants, minorities and discriminated against and disenfranchised groups and individuals?
- what does each Transactional Analyst to take to be her/his social responsibility?
- how do we as Transactional analysts in all fields reflect upon social responsibility?
- what do people need to link their original cultural, social and political script with the cultural, social and political script of the country they move to?
- what is the contribution of social transactional analysis – theory and practice to develop Identity – Integration – Boundaries?
We are planning different formats because we think the conference design and the choice of presenters should mirror the ideas of Identity – Integration – Boundaries
- Presentations – theory and or research
- Poster Sessions
And we are open to other ideas…. respecting the organisational aspects such as the time frame, rooms size and so on …
For your information:
The criteria we use to assess the relevance and quality of the presentations and workshops include:
- Is there a clearly formulated focus in your proposal?
- Does the title of the workshop clearly relate to the proposed content and to the theme of the Conference, with two or three keywords?
- Does your proposal refer to a theoretical concept in connection with TA and, if necessary with other scientifically identifiable approaches?
- To what extent does your proposal demonstrate an original and in-depth reflection?
- Is there a description of either your workshop methodology or the supporting resources of your lecture?
Amongst the indicators useful for assessing a contribution, the Scientific Committee looks for:
- Compliance with the length of proposal is necessary -10 lines to describe the workshop. If e.g. the proposal exists of only 2 and a half lines, it might not mean the workshop is of lower quality, but in such a case, the Scientific Committee does not have enough information to consider and compare
- The identification of either an article or a bibliography locates the theoretical framework of the envisaged contribution.
- A statement of TA concepts or other established models helps us to clarify the level of the proposal.
- Your proposal is required to include practicalities such as the number of participants, plus their professional or institutional context, and any other relevant aspects
The criteria are based on “Appel a contributions” IFAT 2015
