Conflict and Cohesion in Families: Causes and Consequences

Synopsis

Based on a summer institute of the Family Research Consortium, this book presents theory and research from leading scholars working on issues of risk and resilience in families. Focusing on the splits and bonds that shape children's development, this volume's primary goal is to stimulate theoretical and empirical advances in research on family processes. It will be valuable to developmental, social, and clinical psychologists, sociologists, and family studies specialists.

Excerpt

The Family Research Consortium was established with funding from the National Institute of Mental Health in 1985 to improve the quality of investigation, stimulate broader collaboration to enhance discussion across disciplines, and inform prevention efforts in the field of family research. The Family Research Consortium was funded for two successive 5-year periods. Since 1986, the consortium has held summer institutes, bringing together an interdisciplinary group of senior and junior researchers to focus each summer on a different, specific, and timely theme in family research. The Family Research Consortium also runs a multi-site postdoctoral training program in family research and sponsors a number of collaborative research projects among its members. The Second Family Research Consortium (The Research Consortium on Family Risk and Resilience), begun in 1993, consists of 12 scientists, each of whom has an active, funded program of longitudinal family research on biological, psychological, social, or social-structural factors involved in the developmental course of mental health or illness. The consortium group includes Mark Appelbaum, Ph.D. (University of California, San Diego), Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Ph.D. (Columbia University), Linda Burton, Ph.D. (Penn State University), Ana Mari Cauce, Ph.D. (University of Washington), Lindsay Chase-Lansdale, Ph.D. (University of Chicago), Rand Conger, Ph.D. (Iowa State University), Martha Cox, Ph.D. (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Marion Forgatch, Ph.D. (Oregon Social Learning Center), Stuart Hauser, M.D., Ph.D. (Harvard University), Ron Kessler, Ph.D. (Harvard University), Howard Markman, Ph.D. (University of Denver), and Steve Suomi, Ph.D. (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development).
