We are excited to announce the 2019 Call for Submissions!  ResilienceCon focuses on strengths-based approaches for research, prevention, and intervention on violence and other adversities. ResilienceCon also “disrupts” the usual (stale) conference format to create a more interactive and collaborative environment. When great minds get together, they should talk to each other! We also welcome international submissions and fostering cross-cultural study and collaboration.

Program Topics

We invite submissions on all aspects of resilience and adversity, including:

  • Resilience and the social ecology, including protective characteristics of individuals, families, schools, and communities
  • Strength and resilience among people and communities of color
  • Cross-cultural and international research on strengths or resilience
  • Community-based participatory research to promote health and well-being
  • Developmental or other longitudinal studies of strengths or resilience
  • Resilience and schools, including school climate and social networks
  • Resilience across the full spectrum of sexual and gender identities
  • Community resilience and addressing health disparities and other systemic issues
  • Resilience among individuals with disabilities
  • Resilience and rehabilitation in criminal justice and other offender settings
  • Promoting resilience among active military personnel and veterans
  • Exploring well-being, health, post-traumatic growth, and other resilient outcomes
  • Resilience and self-care for professionals
  • Strengths-based approaches to prevention and intervention, such as social and emotional learning (SEL), cultural connectedness, redefining masculinity, bystander programs, mindfulness, narrative, and trauma-informed care
  • Policy initiatives to promote resilience
