McLoyd, the University of Michigan, proposed a 2014 conference on New Perspectives in the Study of Parenting-at-Risk, which was accepted and funded by the Society of Research in Child Development. This meeting will bring together scholars interested in parenting when risk is present, with the aim of moving toward a more integrated, in-depth body of knowledge. The meeting will provide opportunities for scholars to work toward an integrated conceptual framework for parenting as a developmental process and to share innovative approaches to the study of parenting risk and resiliency. The meeting will facilitate sharing of ideas as well as networking among junior and senior researchers, and will bring the topic critical attention while highlighting the leadership and research of the leading CSC faculty and their associates.
