2019 Theory Construction and Research Methodology (TCRM) Workshop

Nov. 19-20 | Fort Worth, Texas | Omni Fort Worth Hotel

The Theory Construction and Research Methodology (TCRM) Workshop is a longstanding tradition within NCFR. Research works in progress are reviewed, discussed, and strengthened in this unique, interactive environment, which is held on-site at the NCFR Annual Conference.

TCRM sessions are planned to run from Tuesday, Nov. 19, through the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the 2019 NCFR Annual Conference in Fort Worth, Texas.

We are pleased to have Dr. Thomas Bradbury presenting a special session at TCRM this year, sponsored by the University of Maryland's Department of Family Science. High-quality theorizing and theory-driven questions are foundational to quality family scholarship. The best intervention work should also be theoretically driven and ideally accompanied by excellent evaluation and basic research. Dr. Bradbury will discuss his work and the importance of theory for both basic and applied scholarship.

This year's TCRM co-chairs are Adam Galovan and Spencer James. Contact them at the 2019 TCRM email address.

TCRM is made possible with the support of NCFR's Journal of Family Theory & Review.
