All presenters must have read the IASD ethics statement ( and agree to adhere to it. In short, all proposals should reflect educational, ethical, non-intrusive goals and methods, and presenters should not practice therapy nor make impractical claims. 

Workshops conducted in a manner that implies that the leader is the ultimate authority on the meaning of the dream, rather than the dreamer, are unacceptable. Workshop and dream group leaders in particular must take care to abide by the IASD ethics statement.

Furthermore, it is considered unprofessional and unethical for presenters to use direct solicitation or persuasion for economic or self-aggrandizement, such as openly advertising and selling of books or services during the presentationYou may briefly reference a book or practice if it forms the source material in support of your presentation but you may NOT overtly promote or sell your books, products or services in the session spaces. Promotion of products and services within the conference facilities is also not permitted other than with flyers on the Attendee Information Table or special exhibit/sales tables contracted for with IASD.  Presenters who wish to sell their books or products must do so through the bookstore. Note this in the Book Listing box below and special forms will be sent to make arrangements with the bookstore. 

Recording: It is also unethical to video record sessions or events without the specific permission of IASD, the presenter and the participants who may be recorded. For reasons of privacy and confidentiality, in IASD workshops, audio and video recordings and photography of the participants are NOT allowed without the express permission of every person present (and to comply with the new European guidelines, they must also be told exactly where and how their image will be used). Video recording of scenes in the more public events such as the Dream Ball is permissible but even there when taking close in pictures of an individual it is proper to ask first. If your presentation involves original art please let the audience know if photography is permitted or not.

Check here that you have read and agree to adhere to the IASD ethics statement and and recording statements and terms stated in them.
