Previous Posting - Preliminary Information:

The 16th International Military and Civilian Combat Stress Conference (IMCCSC) is now accepting requests for presentations for next May. As always, the conference is being held the first week of May (2nd through 8th) in the San Diego, California area. Last years 15th anniversary conference at Camp Pendleton Staff Officers Club was insightful for many, with various topics being discussed on Combat Stress issues as related to military personnel and their families. Evaluations from last years participants were highly favorable in regard to the overall conference.

This year, the major focus will be on an Integrative Approach In Working With Combat Stress Related Problems (Based on feedback from the evaluations for the past two years). One of the major Integrative Medicine programs in the country, Scripps Center For Integrative Medicine in La Jolla California, will be providing several guest speakers discussing how their specialty is effective in working with various Combat Stress related problems. Other topics will also be discussed and any and all requests to present will be considered.

Since we always ask for interested presenters at each years conference, we already have many requests to speak from last years participants, so please respond ASAP so we can make final decisions on presentations over the next several weeks. There will be Plenary sessions on Sat, 3rd and Sun, 4th and workshops scheduled for the other days. Presenters at the plenary sessions receive free admission to the conference for both days as reimbursement. Instructors of one day and two day courses receive a stipend and reimbursement for reasonable travel expenses.

You can respond by email or phone 760-438-2788. A summary of your presentation and a CV should accompany your request.

Thank you, Dr Bart P Billings Director, IMCCSC
