For Students & Early Career Professionals

A Free Workshop at the 2014 CFHA Conference for Students and Early Career Professionals

Thursday, October 16, 2014 - 1:15 to 4:00 PM

From Dissertation to Dissemination:  
An Interactive Writing Workshop

All writers, from Early Career Professionals to those in practice for several years, face challenges in finding the time and support necessary to develop their writing skills. This workshop will offer input from some of CFHA’s top writers about their approaches to writing and speak to the importance of disseminating one’s work, be it related to clinical, research, or policy endeavors.

Participants will be strongly encouraged to share a piece of writing with a small group of colleagues for review at this workshop.  Learn more about the writing guidelines for this piece in the attached PDF.   Facilitators will support the development and enhancement of these submissions, focused on the individual learner’s needs. Participants will also receive recommendations and tools to support development of: personal writing goals, strategies to overcome barriers to writing, and creating their own writing groups. Participants are invited to push aside their barriers and fears of writing, bring a piece of their work, learn and enjoy this supportive model.
