007-02: Family Process Archive: What’s Next?
Linda G. Bell
Summary This archive contains data from a 40-year research project studying families with adolescents in the U.S. and Japan. Included are video tapes of marital and family discussions during home interviews and copies of a family projective exercise. There are also data from telephone interviews when the original adolescents reached midlife, focusing on their well-being and questions about the relationship between elder parents and adult children. Also interviews with parents who abused their children. The goals for the workshop are to brainstorm future qualitative and quantitative research possibilities for these data and to find others who might use these data.
