Call for Proposals
The 2019 National Children of Incarcerated Parents Conference committee invites you to submit proposals for the 2nd Annual Conference on April 14-17, 2019 (limit of two proposal submissions per person).
Proposals should be submitted to one of three tracks.
Innovations in research across disciplines
Research on children of incarcerated parents stems from multiple disciplines, involves multiple approaches, and examines the impact of incarceration on children and families across multiple domains of well-being and stages of child development. Research is encouraged that fills gaps in our knowledge and that is designed to improve practices with children and families and ultimately child and family outcomes. We invite research presentations that make clear implications for practice and policy.
Capacity building across systems
The experience of incarcerated parents in legal and correctional systems has profound impacts on children and families and their experiences in other systems. This track calls for presentations from various system perspectives, e.g., economic support, health and mental health, education, law enforcement, corrections, child welfare and faith-based, on bettering the lives of children and families of incarcerated parents. Presentations on accountability, responsibility and ownership for outcomes across systems and system imposed trauma are also encouraged, as are examples of coordinated and integrated systems of care and responsive policy solutions.
We are accepting proposals for various presentation formats, including
The Call for Proposals has now closed. Presenters will be notified mid-January and will be required to register for the conference.
The committee also is creating Special Interest Groups (SIG) to discuss specific topics in a small-group format. If you are interested in participating in a SIG, or have a topic to discuss, please e-mail your information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
