Building Healthy Families and Relationships
Strong families, and when possible strong marriages and supportive relationships, are the bedrock of society. Healthy couples understand that it requires learned and intentional efforts to build a happy and satisfying life with another person. All families encounter problems and challenges. It is how family members work together to address these concerns that is often the difference between a dysfunctional and a functional family system. The goal of the Building Healthy Families and Relationships initiative is to develop programs and interventions that promote the factors shown to be associated with safe, stable relationships across all family structures, races, incomes, and cultures.
At the Hope and Healing Institute our current Fellows Lorna Bradley, DMin and Amy Bezecny, MDiv both address aspects of building healthy families and relationships.
