Call For Workshops - Deadline for online submission is May 31, 2014.
The 2014 meeting will feature three Skills-Based Workshop sessions. Each session will be 1-1/2 hours in length and offer interactive learning about a specific substance-use related topic. We welcome workshop proposals from any discipline which build skills in clinical practice, education, research, or policy/advocacy related to substance use, as well as workshops emphasizing community action. The most effective workshop sessions will focus on a set of concrete skills or techniques that can be attained and practiced by participants in 90 minutes, and which participants can then introduce into their teaching, practice, research or community following the meeting. Workshop proposals that only plan to disseminate information in a lecture or panel format will not be accepted.
Workshops must be submitted online at www.amersa.org. All applicants will be notified of review decisions by July 1st. Special recognition will be given for the Best Workshop. The Workshop winner will receive an award and free conference registration for the 2015 conference. Please direct workshop related questions to the Workshop Chair, Harold I. Perl, PhD at firstname.lastname@example.org.
