Researchers and practitioners from the marriage and relationship skills education, financial literacy and asset development fields met to discuss the relationship between family strengthening and financial practices to improve programmatic efforts and encourage collaborative policies designed to address long-term family and economic stability. Participants explored future research and collaborative needs and opportunities.
Participants agreed on the need for comprehensive, longitudinal research; identification of appropriate outcome measures; definitions of success in these fields; discovering how services fit together; and more sharing of evidence-based practices and collaborations on smaller scales in order to gain more understanding and establish relationships and referral networks.
