Circle of Knowledge: A Family Institute Event Series


In addition to providing affordable family counseling to our clients, often on a sliding-fee scale through our Bette D. Harris Family and Child Clinic, The Family Institute at Northwestern University hosts an annual event series, Circle of Knowledge.

Through our Circle of Knowledge luncheon lectures and evening programs, The Family Institute brings information on timely issues to our friends and supporters. Our staff experts present on topics focusing on relationships, children and family life that incorporate and highlight cutting-edge research findings in the field of family therapy.

The Circle of Knowledge provides the knowledge and care families count on to live healthy lives. It’s another way we strive to further our mission and create a stronger society through healthier families.

Below is a full list of our Circle of Knowledge 2014 events. Visit us at to learn more, and follow us on twitter @cok_tfi for all the details!
