The Center for Child and Family Well-Being at UW Madison School of Human Ecology presents...
2013-2014 Families and Well-being Seminar Series The Center for Child and Family Well-Being is proud to announce its first annual seminar series, “Families and Well-Being.” Based on multidisciplinary perspectives, the 2012-13 series will explore the physical, psychological, social, and economic aspects of well-being in families. Family well-being is a unifying, common theme among many scholars who seek to improve the quality of life of individuals, families and communities. We are the only UW-Madison center to focus solely on the advancement of multidisciplinary family research and outreach. Our 2012-13 series is designed to bring scholars from multiple fields together to consider what it means to be a “well family” in the 21st century and how the university can contribute to increasing quality of life by improving family well-being. Understanding of families and family functions is changing based on cutting edge research in multiple disciplines. Our goal for the 2012-13 seminar series is to bring that research forward in a common forum and to make sense of it for families and those who serve them. The series will provide both breadth and depth on complex components of family well-being.
