Family Focus on Nonnormative Transitions

Family life does not move in one smooth, steady line. As the articles in this edition of Family Focus illustrate, there are also unpredicted and unexpected transitions along families’ paths. These nonnormative transitions generally do not have guidelines or standards to follow. Families often find themselves feeling their way in the dark as they negotiate unfamiliar territory.

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.
