2013 NCFR Annual Conference

Well-being of Children and Youth in Families and Communities

Grand Hyatt, San Antonio, Texas

Judith Fischer
, Texas Tech University, Program Chair

How do family professionals understand the well-being of family members who are children and adolescents? For the 2013 conference, I would like to bring together all of us (researchers, practitioners and program evaluators, policy makers, community members, etc.) to examine the well-being of child and adolescent family members. The multidimensional concept of well-being is associated with individual characteristics, family and social contexts, political and historical contexts, and their interactions. The conference should empower and inform participants to take the next steps to better understand and enhance the well-being of children and adolescents, and, in turn, their families and communities.
