Children’s Development in the Context of Their Parents' Relationships

Francesca Adler-Baeder, speaking from an extensive research background on families under stress and children's experiences in diverse family types as well as practical experience working with a broad spectrum of families, engages us in ways to better understand and empower families under stress to nurture their children. She provides practical applications, discussing the systems approach used in a statewide initiative in which practitioners and researchers have built real partnerships for effecting positive change. Adler-Baeder is a professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Auburn University. Adler-Baeder serves as co-director of the National Extension Relationship and Marriage Education Network (NERMEN), oversees the National Stepfamily Resource Center, and directs several research projects on children and couple relationships.
