Chautauqua Conference

The Center for Family Resilience and the Department of Human Development and Family Science annually host the Chautauqua Conference on Family Resilience. With a focus on individual and family resilience, the event brings together researchers, service providers and policy makers around a series of research presentations around a common theme. The ultimate goal is for resilience research to pave the way for practical applications for family health and well-being.


The conference is held each spring in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
