SPEAKERS AND SCHEDULE:
The conference will be held all day on Friday October 25, and Saturday October 26, from about 8am-6pm, with an optional meet-and-greet reception on Thursday evening October 24.
The Convention will feature 2 tracks this year: one for families/parents/children, and the other for adults with misophonia and a focus on coping skills. Keep an eye out here and on our website this summer, for details on programming: https://misophonia-association.org/2019-misophonia-convention-denver-colorado/.
Please be advised, there will be videographers and photographers on site during the Convention. For those who do not wish to be photographed, there will be a clearly-marked area in which to sit.
Our overall goal remains to create an affordable convention that will bring you the very best in current thinking, coping, management, new knowledge, and practical sessions with useful advice and support.
FOOD AND CONVENTION ENVIRONMENT:
Many people attending this event have specific sounds or movements that trigger their misophonia reactions. We want this to be a safe and comfortable environment for all participants. Therefore, NO FOOD, DRINK, OR GUM will be allowed into the meeting rooms. We know that there are many different types of triggers, and we do our absolute best to keep the convention environment as trigger-free as possible. However, we know it is impossible to eliminate all triggers for all sufferers, so we always ask that everyone does their best to be mindful and respectful of each other, and responsive to other people’s needs.
There will be provided snack breaks served outside of the meeting rooms, allowing for enough space to separate from others. We always try to plan the types of snacks carefully. There is a lunch break scheduled into each day where you will be on your own to get whatever you want for lunch.
THURSDAY EVENING WELCOME:
Join us for a Welcome/Meet & Greet on Thursday evening October 24. We will be in a private area just for our group. Children and youth welcome! Come get to know others in the misophonia community!
