Conference Announcement and Call for Submissions

Families in Difficult Times: Conflict, Covid, and Cyberspace

Online, October 10 – October 12, 2022

We are please to annonce the upcoming 9th Conference of IAFP which will celebrate the 30th anniversary of IAFP. Given the current pandemic conditions, this meeting will be held online, aiming to adjust for different time zones around the world. Save the dates and mark your calendar!

Our conferences address a broad range of issues including “classical” themes such as partnership and child rearing in the context of family diversity, as well as current hot topics. This conference takes a special focus on family stress and coping.

Keynotes and invited symposia will present research on families in times of war and forced migration, family life in the Covid-19 pandemic, families facing high post-separation conflict, and challenges of increasing digitalization. They will discuss services of family support, which often involve multiprofessional collaboration and increasingly rely on digital tools. Submissions of papers, posters, and symposia may contribute to this focal theme, but may also address further issues of family science. Interdisciplinary submissions are welcome!

This meeting is organized in cooperation with Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich and the German Youth Institute.

We invite submissions of abstracts until May 30, 2022.
