The Council on Contemporary Families was formed to increase communication among family researchers and practitioners from many different fields, and to help the press and public get access to accurate information and best-practice findings about how today’s families work. The theme of this year’s conference is a decade-long evaluation of what we have learned and what we have yet to find out about how to help America’s diverse families better cope with contemporary changes and challenges. In addition to organizing the panels listed on the conference program, we surveyed CCF members to collect their most important–and sometimes surprising–recent research findings, practical experience, and clinical observations. We are publishing the results of our survey to encourage members and the press to explore these topics at greater length.
