The Parenting and Family Research Center (PFRC) aims to improve the wellbeing of children and families by:
- strengthening and advancing evidence-based, community-wide parenting and family support strategies;
- evaluating and improving interventions for the prevention and treatment of children’s social, emotional, behavioral, and health problems;
- increasing our understanding of children, adolescents, and parents in the contexts of family, school, and community;
- using scientific evidence to inform public policy.
