Wynne Center for Family Research

The Wynne Center for Family Research is dedicated to studies that:

  • Help families learn how to cope with the stress of serious illness and loss
  • Improve parent-child relationships
  • Decrease intimate partner violence and improve couple relationships
  • Train physicians and other clinicians in patient-centered, family-oriented healthcare

In the first decade of research, the Wynne Center published studies on subjects as diverse as foster parent interventions; the link between depression, chronic pain, and significant relationships in women; why women stay in violent relationships; and the effect on patients of physician self-disclosure.
