2020 Theory Construction and Research Methodology (TCRM) Workshop

Full day Tuesday, Nov 10 | Wednesday AM only, Wed, Nov 11

The Theory Construction and Research Methodology (TCRM) Workshop is a longstanding tradition within NCFR. Working papers on family theory and research methodology are reviewed, discussed, and strengthened in this unique, interactive environment, which is held on site at the NCFR Annual Conference.

TCRM sessions run from Tuesday, Nov. 10, through the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 11, at the 2020 NCFR Annual Conference.

This year's TCRM co-chairs are Kani Diop and Daniel Puhlman. Contact them at the 2020 TCRM email address.

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