Workshop & Paper PROPOSALS

“Living Liturgy in Practice:

Orthodox Care in a Rapidly Changing World”

The annual OCAMPR conference is a unique opportunity for Orthodox Christian care professionals, clergy, students, and theologians to come together for fellowship and interdisciplinary dialogue. 

OCAMPR requests that proposals for presentations reflect professional, academic discussion on critical issues regarding the helping professions and pastoral care, specifically as it relates to our Orthodox Christian faith. We wish to encourage an Orthodox approach to the topics that are addressed, informed by psychology and medicine. Although presentations reflecting the Conference theme are encouraged, other subjects related to the overall mission of OCAMPR are welcomed.

We welcome proposals for professional, academic presentations on critical issues focused on professional caregiving and our shared Orthodox Christian faith, particularly related to the conference theme. Proposals are due July 11, 2022 and will be reviewed by members of the OCAMPR board and conference committee. Presenters will be notified by email if their proposal is accepted, accepted with revision or not accepted. New this year, we will be receiving proposal submissions via google forms.
