The National Catholic School of Social Service will sponsor the 16th Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference on Clinical Supervision (IICCS) in downtown Washington D.C. from June 29th to July 1, 2022.   

This conference brings together supervision practitioners, educators and researchers from across the spectrum of mental health professions to examine current issues in clinical supervision practice and research within and across professional disciplines.

IICCS’s Executive Committee is pleased to invite submissions for abstract proposals which examine clinical supervision theory, research and practice within and across professional disciplines. The conference goals are to facilitate both interdisciplinary and international dialogue concerning the transmission of new knowledge, research, and best practices in the field of clinical supervision.

Before submitting your proposal, please carefully read the following:

Kinds of presentations: Proposals can be for paper sessions (for which presenters will have 30 minutes including Q and A), poster sessions (for which presenters will have 60 minutes), or roundtable discussions (for which facilitators will have 2 separate groups for 45 minutes each).

Those submitting a proposed paper session also can indicate their willingness to have it then considered as a poster session should it not be accepted.

What to submit: We welcome proposals that enhance the diversity of our international and interdisciplinary focus. Proposals should be submitted with a title and as an abstract of 200-500 words.   Proposals for paper and round table sessions also will require three learning objectives to permit CE credit for attendees.

Submission deadline extended: April 1, 2022

All presenters will need to register for the conference and can present in person or virtually. 

Criteria for evaluating proposals :  Proposals will be evaluated on the following criteria

  • Originality, relevance, and interest to conference audience
  • Clarity of description, background, and purposes
  • Methods and results (if research focused)
  • Conclusions and implications
  • Overall contribution to the clinical supervision and training field.
