Starting in 2015, the OBH Center researchers and different clinical colleagues began to provide a full day pre-conference at the Wilderness Therapy Symposium in order to share current research and trends in the field of OBH and beyond.

This full day conference is free to the public and  research abstracts are provided to document the topics of the day. Below are copies of the abstracts from each year. For more information about this pre-conference, please feel free to contact Anita Tucker, OBH Associate Director at

Due to Covid-19 there was no research preconference in 2020.
