Research from the field
The issues affecting children and families are complex, and sound research is needed to build an understanding of what works to strengthen families and keep children safe. The Research from the field series provides brief summaries of seminal, thought-provoking research studies or syntheses. The summaries are intended to inspire new ways of thinking and promote transformative approaches to supporting child and family well-being. They cover a broad range of topics. Each summary highlights findings from a single research study or synthesis, identifies additional resources to further explore the topic, and offers considerations for application within the context of transformation toward a 21st Century child and family well-being system.
