Request for Proposals



Don’t want to wait until October 2022 for the next biannual Trauma & Recovery Conference? Join the Connecticut Women’s Consortium on October 18th and 19th, 2021 at Uplifting Voices: Conversations on Trauma & Recovery with the Consortium. Spanning 2 days, this virtual event will bring together experts in the field of behavioral health to continue to explore the realities of trauma as it manifests through individual and community experiences whilst simultaneously acknowledging the multiple pathways to recovery. Join us as we strive to push the boundaries of traditional trauma treatment and expand the definition of recovery, creating comprehensive, inclusive systems of care.


Conference Objectives:

  1. Understand ways in which trauma impacts individuals and communities.

  2. Become familiar with a variety of ways to prevent and treat trauma.

  3. Understand the role of individual and community resilience.


All presentations will run for 80 minutes. Presenters will be assigned to Monday, October 18th or Tuesday, October 19th by the Consortium based on topic—your submission of this RFP indicates that you are available from 9am – 4pm on both training dates listed above. Please note that due to the nature and limited time of these presentations, small breakout groups will not be permitted.



Please complete the following application in full, following all word count and character specifications. Additional materials (outlined below) should be returned along with the proposal by the deadline. You may submit more than one proposal. Please note that all breakout sessions must focus on trauma and recovery. You will be asked to identify what topic area your presentation falls under within the application.
