The OSU Center for Family Resilience will host the eighth Chautauqua Conference on Family Resilience from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Feb. 3 at the OSU-Tulsa Conference Center.

This year’s topic is “Biobehavioral Markers in Risk and Resilience Research,” an exploration of the interrelations of behavioral, psychosocial and biological processes. Biobehavioral markers can be used to help researchers and practitioners identify specific brain regions, brain circuits, chemical imbalances or patterns of neural activation associated with particular individual or family risks.

The Chautauqua conference is hosted this year by OSU’s Center for Family Resilience, Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Adversity and the Institute for Building Early Relationships. For more information or to register online, visit the conference website. The preregistration deadline is Jan. 27. The cost is $25 for students and $50 for non-students.
