Call for Proposals

2023 Network Days Conference- Agility Through Loss and Change

As a member of the Sanctuary Network of practice, we invite you to submit Proposals for workshops for the Sanctuary Network Conference being held from April 19th – 21st, 2023. These workshops should be relevant to the field of trauma-informed care and should highlight experiences, innovations and practical strategies exemplifying the uses of the Sanctuary ModelSM that would be interesting and applicable to organizations as they implement and sustain Sanctuary Model practice.

This year’s theme for Network Days is Agility Through Loss and Change. As such, we welcome Proposals for workshops that highlight this theme and emphasize Self Care, Resilience and Community Connections created, strengthened, and/or sustained through the practice of the Sanctuary Model.

We are excited as this year’s conference will be held live and in-person in Westchester County, NY, at the Sonesta Hotel in White Plains, a short train ride to New York City. As you plan and prepare your Proposal, please keep in mind each workshop is an hour and fifteen minutes in length, and presenters should include time within this window for attendee questions.

Proposals will be evaluated by the Workshop Committee (a representative group of Sanctuary Network members and Sanctuary Institute faculty members). Evaluators will independently review each proposal and provide a total score based on:

–  Relevance and fidelity to the Sanctuary Model

– Experiential and engaging nature of workshop design and content

– Applicability of information to the Network Members

To inform the evaluators’ scores, the workshop committee may also elect to conduct a 15-minute call via Zoom with potential presenters at a mutually-convenient time. During these short conversations, potential presenters will have an opportunity to present a short excerpt of their workshop, answer committee members’ questions and clearly communicate the experience of attending their planned workshop.

An average of the evaluators’ scores will be assigned to the proposal and those with the highest scores will be selected for presentation after committee consensus. It should be noted that each Sanctuary Network organization may submit up to three (3) proposals. While an organization may have more than one (1) proposal selected, the goal is to provide a diverse representation of workshops from across the Sanctuary Network.

Very important: For consideration, it is required that you submit all of the following information along with your proposal: Your bio/curriculum vitae (about 100 words), a headshot for each presenter and a link or QR Code to your Linked-In page.

Use the form below to submit your proposal. Please submit your Proposal, Bio, Headshot and Linked-In information no later than February 15th, 2023. Thank you, The Sanctuary Network Days Committee.
