AFCC 53rd Annual Conference Modern Families: New Challenges, New Solutions
Todays modern family is a far cry from images of the so-called traditional family of the 1950s. Family structures now include heterosexual marriage, unmarried cohabitants, same-sex partners (married and unmarried), adoptive children, children of assisted reproductive technologies, single parent and multigenerational families, kinship care, foster care and more. With more complex family structures come more complex legal, social and psychological challenges for professionals and families alike. Join AFCC as we explore the impact of changing family structures on our work, our families and our lives.
