Global Family Concerns and the Role of Family Life Education: An Ecosystemic Analysis
Darling, Carol A.; Turkki, Kaija
Family Relations, v58 n1 p14-27 Feb 2009
We surveyed colleagues from 4 international professional organizations involved with families in order to examine global family concerns and the role of family life education from an ecosystemic perspective. Our sample represented 6 continents and 50 countries. Survey results indicated that family education and related coursework were available in all continents along with considerable public interest in family education. International public concern about family issues was related to population characteristics, values related to parenting and childrearing, interest in family and health legislation/regulations, and public interest in family, parent, and marriage education.
