MIAMI, FL–Holidays are a great time for family fun. But they also pose many challenges for individuals and families, from coping with in-laws and former spouses, dating over the holidays, interfaith families, family rituals, and using technology to keep families together.
This time of year the Council on Contemporary Families fields many calls from journalists reporting on how families and individuals are coping. Below is a list of story leads from CCF researchers and clinicians you can contact. Our CCF fellows have identified a wide range of topics. They can offer background for stories or help you develop your ideas.
