What's Love Got to Do with It? Linking the Healthy Marriage Initiative and Reduction of Risk for Child Maltreatment
Focusing on links between couple functioning and children's well-being, presenters provide the most updated information on direct and indirect effects of parental conflict and family instability on children; discuss the experiences of several Federally-funded pilot programs offering marriage education to low-resource individuals, couples, and teens; and highlight lessons learned, i.e., the challenges, successes, and recommendations for future work. The session includes information regarding work with youth, unmarried parents, and complex families and features the launch of the Community Healthy Marriage Initiative projects, supported through an unprecedented Administration for Children and Families grants program.
