2008 NCFR Annual Conference

Lenses on Family

Little Rock, Arkansas

The lenses through which we view family affect what is seen and unseen, as well as how our research findings are understood. The theme of this year's conference encompasses how families are defined, which family processes are presumed to be adaptive, and how our research findings are interpreted in the public arena.

Putting on diverse lenses (cross-culturally, methodologically, disciplinarily, pedagogically, ideologically, and in other ways) allows us to expand our vision of possibilities for family relationships.
