Family Sustainability: Contextualizing Relationships Within Evolving Systems

The articles in this edition of Family Focus explore the theme for the 2019 NCFR Annual Conference. As families face stressors related to change and evolving systems, they may find strength and resilience in the family relationships around them. This concept is examined from several directions ranging from broad theoretical perspectives, to more specific examples of how relationships help create and support resilience in families.

Each issue of NCFR Report features a "Family Focus" section containing research- and practice-based articles on that issue's theme, written by family scholars and professionals. Articles are accepted based on an editorial review process.

Family Focus articles are exclusive to NCFR members. Not a member yet? The winter 2018 issue Understanding Gun Violence From a Family Perspective is open to the public.
