    The Centre for Family Research undertakes research that increases understanding of children, parents and family relationships.

The Centre for Family Research undertakes transdisciplinary research that increases understanding of children, parents and family relationships. Our research has dealt with topics including pregnancy, childhood, partnerships, parenthood and later life. Most of our members are psychologists, but our team also includes sociologists, anthropologists, biologists and bioethicists.

Our three research groups are:

  • Non-traditional families
  • Social and cognitive development and the family
  • Genetics, health and families
