NCFR Report: Recovering From COVID-19
Family Focus on Recovering From COVID-19
As we confront the challenges associated with re-opening schools, re-building the economy, and meeting the health and safety needs of individuals, families, and communities, the long-term repercussions of the global COVID-19 pandemic remain uncertain. This issue aims to shed light on how Family Science theory and research can help inform efforts to support families, schools, and communities during this recovery process.
