White House Conference on Families: Families, Challenges and Responsibilities. Delegate Workbook.
White House Conference on Families, Washington, DC.
This workbook for delegates to the White House Conference on Families (WHCF) is intended to perform three basic functions: (1) focus attention on the themes of the WHCF; (2) provide brief background information on the issues to be discussed in the Conference workgroups; and (3) summarize recommendations for which there was consensus across most states. Six issue briefs provide background information in the areas of preparation for marriage and family life; specific support for families; parents and children; family violence; substance abuse; and aging and families. The briefs are organized into four sections: Introduction, Background Information on Major Issues, Current Programs and Policies, and Recommendations from the States. State recommendations were further divided by topic and issue. Similar recommendations were grouped together and a sample of these recommendations (for purposes of illustration) have been selected and included in this workbook. (Author/MP)
