Child, Adolescent, and Family Studies
The well-being of families and children is affected not just by what happens at home and work, in classrooms, and on playgrounds, but also by broader forces, such as federal and state policies and programs. IPR faculty in this area study how social, economic, and governmental contexts intertwine to affect family dynamics and outcomes—in particular, those of children and young adults.
