28th Annual National Symposium on Family Issues

Causes and Consequences of Parent-Child Separations: Pathways to Resilience

The symposium will focus on circumstances of parent-child separation that have become increasingly evident in the social-political-economic context of the 21st century, namely parental incarceration, migration and deportation, and military deployment. In sessions addressing these three broad domains of parent-child separation, speakers from multiple disciplines will consider the societal factors that have given rise to increasing numbers of children and youth who are experiencing separation and the implications of separation for their well-being. Speakers will also highlight the implications of their research for evidence-based programs and policies that foster youth and family resilience.

The Symposium on Family Issues is sponsored annually by The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
