Submission Deadline: Friday, September 12, 2014.

Notification date: Monday, October 27, 2014

Whether you’re serving babies and families in the NICU, colleagues, or students, there’s one vital question to ask yourself: What can I do to elevate this experience?

This question changes things. Your perspective is immediately re-framed.

If I’m asked to report in rounds on the feeding progress of one of our patients, and I ask myself that question, it certainly changes the manner in which I reply. (It almost makes me stand up straighter!) And just think of how it could positively affect patient care, a new student, or interaction with a new NICU parent in need of connection and support.

It takes you out of your routine and begs you to seek improvement in every opportunity that lies before you. This applies to patient care, education, interpersonal relationships, speaking, research and more.

For that and many reasons, the theme for the 5th Annual NANT Conference is: Elevate the Experience!

How are YOU (and/or your amazing colleagues) currently elevating practice, knowledge, leadership, research or education?

Submit your work for the 2015 NANT Conference and help all neonatal therapists (and our esteemed colleagues) elevate the experience.

Call for Proposals: 13th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference
United States

Call for Proposals: 13th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference

March 11-12, 2015 Ann Arbor, Michigan

Submission deadline is September 8, 2014.

Proposals are now being accepted for the 13th Annual University of Michigan Depression on College Campuses Conference. You are invited to submit proposals for workshops, concurrent sessions, and poster displays relating to the 2015 theme of “Redefining the Culture of Stress.” (working title)

Each year the Depression on College Campuses Conference hosts attendees from over 50 colleges and universities from across the nation for a focused review of recent research and practical advances in our understanding of depressive illnesses in college students. A Conference Planning Committee, co-chaired by Dr. John F. Greden, Dr. Daniel Eisenberg, and Dr. Todd Sevig, and including members from across the University of Michigan campus, will review and select all workshop, concurrent session, and poster session proposals.

Conference Learning Objectives

Depression among college students is an urgent public health problem. If we are to prevent the progression, chronicity, recurrence, and burden of depression, we must emphasize earlier detection, intervention, and ultimately, prevention.

Learning objectives and expected results for the conference participants are an improved understanding and ability to implement:

Best practices for prevention and intervention methods to address stress, anxiety, depression and related illnesses among college students;

Research which demonstrates the impact of campus mental health programs and services which result in higher retention and graduation rates, stronger community engagement and connectedness, and the formation of positive social relationships;

Outreach models to reach students with depressive illnesses, or who are at risk of developing a depressive illness, in order to help these students to engage in treatment which will enhance their ability to manage stress and achieve success during their college career;

University policies and programs which aim to address the culture of extreme competitiveness and severe stress on many campuses, in order to improve student mental health and overall wellness.


The conference attracts a multi-disciplinary audience of professionals working on college campuses, including:

Counselors and Counseling Center Directors



Academic Advisors

Student Affairs administrators and staff




Presentation topics

The 2015 conference theme is “Depression on College Campuses: Redefining the Culture of Stress.”  (working title).

According to the spring 2012 American College Health Association National College Health Assessment undergraduate summary, more than half of college students reported above average or tremendous stress levels, and 30 percent of students said it had a negative impact on their academic performance. In addition, research indicates that students who suffer from severe stress may become depressed, and experience adverse physical health. While most university administrators would agree that too much stress is a bad thing, the campus culture which they cultivate often contributes to feelings of severe stress among students. Must student success always be equated with stress?

The 2015 Depression on College Campuses Conference will ask the question, “Is it is possible to simultaneously promote academic rigor and student wellness?” and explore how colleges and universities can redefine their campus climate by recognizing and counterbalancing the negative effects of stress in order to create a healthy academic culture.

To this end, we are looking for presentations on model programs, evidence-based practices, and research studies that demonstrate how a focus on improving student mental health by reducing stress on campus ­– and by helping students to cope more effectively with the inevitable bouts of stress that will occur – can improve overall student wellness and allow students to achieve their full potential. We are also looking for presentations related to how the academic environment and related programs might influence mental health (e.g., the impact of competitiveness and academic support on mental health).

Call for Proposals: Disability/Culture: New Grounds. A Practice-Based Research Symposium
United States

Call for Proposals: Disability/Culture: New Grounds. A Practice-Based Research Symposium

February 3rd to 6th 2015

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Deadline for applications: August 1st 2014, notification: September 15th 2014.

In our seventh practice-based research symposium at the University of Michigan, and as the Initiative on Disability Studies’ Spring Conference, we’ll investigate cultural practices around cognitive, emotional, sensory, and embodied differences that trouble an assumption of similarity of time, space, and communication practice.

From crip time to neurodiversity, from pain space to Deaf gain, from access intimacy to decolonial crip methods, what are new(er) ways of thinking about disability and the arts (of living)? How can we think about the ethics of reciprocity, about new ways of being audience, being performer, being in shared (academic/art/life) space? How can art/life practices trouble older ways of thinking about artistic and academic disciplinarities?

We invite up to five fellows (grad students, faculty, artists) to come together for four days, to workshop, use performances and presentations as provocations, and explore methods of merging art practice, conviviality, and critical encounter. The specific topics we will explore are open, and will be determined by applicants’ interests. We will be in research practice together: this is not a conference to share the results of previous research or practice. Thus, we are not looking for papers, we are looking for participants in this experiment. Come and share the excitement of your creative and/or critical research, present a workshop based on your inquiry, and find out what happens. The experiment lies in finding a path toward accessible artful community together.

Before the symposium, a small collection of material from all participants will be made available to prepare us for our time together. During the symposium, each fellow will have (up to) two hours to engage others in a seminar. We will be in residence at the Duderstadt Video Performance Studio on the University of Michigan's North Campus, home to multiple performance technologies, with innovative tech wizards at the ready.

Each invitee will have transport and accommodation costs reimbursed up to $500 dollars. The conference hotel offers rooms for about sixty dollars a night, and we will assist people who want to be hosted by graduate students and locals.

Application Process: please email us a short CV, a sample of your work, and a brief statement about why you would like to participate. Direct all materials to the symposium director, Petra Kuppers,

Call for Papers: Narrative and Medicine: Caring for the Future

Call for Papers: Narrative and Medicine: Caring for the Future

International Interdisciplinary Conference

March 5-6, 2015 Lisbon, Portugal


(Con)texts and Practices Across Disciplines

University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies

Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation

The concept of Narrative Medicine, established by Rita Charon, among others, in the late 1990s, claimsthat a patient-centred medical practice should include the competence to interpret “stories of illness” in order to better attend to the personal experience of illness (Charon 2006). Drawing on the works of Paul Ricoeur, who argued for the narrative roots of identity, Narrative-Based Medicine recognizes the inter-subjective nature of the therapeutic relationship and affirms the relevance of narrative knowledge for the diagnosis, the therapeutic process, the education of patients and healthcare professionals, and for research (Greenhalgh & Hurwitz, 1998).

Strengthened by the integrative medicine movement that emerged in the 1990s, NBM/Narrative-Based Medicine proposes to complement the prevalent rational and objective paradigm of EBM/Evidence-Based-Medicine, considering that the present techno-scientific developments call for a humanistic reorientation towards an “ethics of relationship” and empathy (Hervé et al., 2001), of generosity and singularity. The role of NBM is recognized today, both for its large critical output (Zaner, Charon, Frank, Hurwitz, Danou), and for the simultaneous development of medical training programmes in North America and in European countries such as the United Kingdom, Switzerland, France and more recently Portugal.

In line with the multidisciplinary innovative research developed by the project Narrative & Medicine: (con)texts and practices across disciplines, we launch a Call for papers for an interdisciplinary conference, aiming to provide a forum for healthcare professionals and international and national scholars from the Humanities and Medicine, interested in discussing the future of this subject.

Topics of inquiry include but are not limited to:

Humanities methodologies for the Medical Sciences

Social impacts and impact areas of Medical Humanities

Narrative Medicine and medical education

Patient care, health care, caregivers and social health conditions

Vulnerability and clinical relationship

Illness, medical care and their literary and artistic manifestations

Narrative and ethics

Narrative medicine, neuroscience and cultural anthropology

Narratives and experiences of illness

Narratives and medical experience

Narrative and trauma

The limits of representing illness

Art and art therapies

“Affect theory” and Narrative Medicine

Literature in Narrative Medicine and its implications for Literary Studies

The programme includes plenary sessions with keynote speakers and break-out parallel sessions subject to abstract submission.

The proposals will be submitted to the Scientific Committee and must include the following:
